DISCOVERY OF THE PANAMINT RANGE, CALIFORNIA, IRON METEORITE

Name: PANAMINT RANGE

Place of find: West slope of Panamint Range, Inyo County, California, USA.

Approximately 36°30'N, 117°30'W.

Date of find: Between 1950 and 1964.

Class and type: Iron. Coarse octahedrite. Ni = 7.17%, Co = 0.3% (E. Olsen, analyst: X-ray fluorescence method).

Number of individual specimens: 1

Total weight: 204 grams at present. Original finder cut off a small slice. Original weight estimated at 230 grams.

Circumstances of find: Found by unnamed prospector, who, in 1960, left it with Mr. James Minette, mine geologist for U.S. Borax Co., Boron, California. Mr. Minette sent it to the Field Museum, Chicago, Illinois, in late 1973.

Comments: Polished section studied by Dr. V.F. Buchwald of Copenhagen; it is a highly shock-altered iron of the crater-forming kind. Its location, about 680 km west of the Canyon Diablo find, and the absence of a known and verified meteorite crater in the area, strongly suggest it is a piece of transported Canyon Diablo meteorite. Superficially the piece looks very much like Canyon Diablo individuals, with small pockets of adhering clay in surface flutings. Its bandwidth, however, is at the lower limit of values reported for Canyon Diablo, 1.5-2.5 mm. The specimen is located at the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago.
