Hey guys,
Im over here in W.A and thinking about looking for known strewn fields locations close to Perth and heading out with my trusty Mine lab Xterra 705 .
I spose you have to go all metals and dig all iron targets hey?
Anyone gone out looking and found any?

Found a few while detecting but not specifically looking for them.
Plenty of tectites though and pretty sure I've found a small impact crator.

No idea about near Perth sorry, I'm about 1000klms away. Tectites are common on the gold fields and I'd imagine meteorites are too, just I don't have a real clue what I'm looking for.

The possible impact crator I'm keeping close to my chest for the time being. I have taken 2 geos there so far who are reasonably confidant it is.

Yeah they can be tricky to know what to look for. Yep keep it on the down low wink
This vid is so good. Love to find something like this...

I've looked it up,there's some interesting impact crater databases.

the new fireball sky watch network would also be interesting to watch.

iron meteorites is easy,go dragging with neodymium magnets.

this site is the one I browsed a few years ago,it's very cool:

Ya but it picks up them meteors with all the rest of the crap.

you wouldn't do it unless you knew there was a strewn field or where pretty confident.
