    Mysteries of Lucky Nugget
    A story about the Old Woman Meteorite and the spirit of discovery

    Presented by Land Ops ARC http://landops.org
    Produced by C.E. Brandcast http://cebrandcast.com

    This is a story about the Old Woman Meteorite and the spirit of discovery. This was the second largest meteorite to be found in the United States and several mysteries surround the discovery including how such a large three ton space rock ended up in the California desert with no impact crater.

    This was a massive shooting star at one time, perhaps 10,000 years ago. It was discovered in 1976 by two prospector while they were searching for the lost arch gold mine. Their search for gold yielded a much greater discovery yet with no compensation.

    The original written story of the meteorite has a dark cloud over it due to the legal battle over the rights. Land Ops has decided to tell the story from the adventure perspective and the spirit of discovery. The meteorite can be viewed at the Desert Discovery Center in Barstow, California.

    What is Land Ops?
    Land Ops is a unique adventure radio club that combines off road exploration with navigation challenges and radio communications. Our expedition style events and trips are not a competition, but rather, focus on teamwork exercises that seek and find things which are lost or hidden.

    Officially Land Ops ARC is an amateur radio club (club call KM6HJV). The club used VHF radios and repeaters as well as APRS digipeaters to conduct the research and report for the documentary.
