Howdy folks. Back to work in Fallon, NV after the holiday. Looks like I'll have 4 days to do some hunting (11th-14th) in about a week. I was wondering if anyone could give me tips on Rye Patch, or any other nugget shooting spots in the area? I'm okay just wondering around in the desert, as long as there is even a small chance of hitting on something.

I'm also available to meet up if anyone needs a detecting buddy.

Thanks for any help or advice,
-NZ49er.

The Rye Patch area is heavily claimed, along with quite a bit of private land. Have fun. Time for more coffee.
Yep, I saw that on the Nevada claims website. That's why I was looking for some advice.

Thanks!

Another option for you is meteorite hunting on some of the nearby dry lakes in your vicinity.
Good luck whatever you do.

Thanks! I've been working on a huge dry bed in the area for a few weeks. Been keeping my eyes out. One of the crew did find a lightning cast yesterday. Pretty sweet find
