I'm the Rick Jackson in this article. I was with Reg Barnes on the day we collected what appears to be the best wulfenites ever collected from the site. I sold that remarkable single crystal piece to Mark Hay in 2011 with other remarkable 79 pieces I had collected. I remember going to the mine with fond memories and have no regrets on selling since my plan was to move to Montana and I didn't want it damaged in transit. I will attach my photo of the piece as soon as I can figure this site out. It must have been designed by engineers! Dam it Jim I'm a Geologist not an Engineer!

Hi, Rick,
That's a great piece you collected! Thanks for providing some insight into your collecting at the 79 Mine with Reg. Wish I could have gotten the specimen before Mark did! Ha!
