Gold Hits Record High - Here's Why and How to Get Your Share!

Gold Hits Record High - Here's Why and How to Get Your Share! 0

The stock market has been a lot like a roller coaster ride lately.  With all the uncertainty with the world in general, it is obvious why.  Covid19 has shuttered businesses world wide and the media has scared many people to the point of relieving themselves of their natural rights.  Many people have had to dip into their investments when it is a bad time to do so.  This only compounds things for a person's personal wealth.  Investing in the stock market has been, and always will come with some risk.  There are certain investments though that are virtually guaranteed to never lose their value....

Just-a-Swingin’ – Metal Detector Swing Speed 0

I watch a lot of metal detecting and treasure hunting videos and see a few comments from random viewers criticizing other detectorist’s detecting techniques. One post said, “Why you swingin so fast?

Okay, okay, let me appease all of the naysayers that are reading this. There is a time and a place for swinging your metal detector slow. There is also a time and a place to keep moving. It is not the viewer’s (who only sees but a fraction of the actual hunt) position to decide. Here are some examples and reasons why you may want to swing your metal detector fast or slow.

Where does gold come from? Any prospector knows you can find it, in varying quantities, in just about any stream or river in the United States. Hard rock miners know it can also be found in quartz veins, typically running Southwest-Northeast in many mountains and valleys across the country. But how many of these gold hounds know where the gold originally came from? Probably not as many as you would think…including myself…until recently.

 

Most people think gold simply comes from the ground. Little do they know the trip it has made in its lifetime. In an article by Science Daily, I learned that gold along with the rest of “the planet’s accessible reserves of precious metals are the result of a bombardment of meteorites more than 200 million years after Earth was formed.” Come to find out, gold is really just star dust....
