Wow, That piece of paper has been there awhile, Should have been called Reckarock as that's a better descriptive name for dynamite !

hey goldfinding, thats a great find, thanks for taking a photo of it, its great to see some things untouched. here's a photo of a gold pan.... just left, as if the old digger had moved on ..... you can see the bottom of it has rusted out and the bush begining to grow through it..... i dont know how much longer it will last, but hopfully long enough for other detectorists to enjoy it....cheers Smile

Hi All
Nice find, I love finding relics and enjoy trying to find out something about it. Thought this was interesting

The Hellgate Explosion and Rackarock
H. SPRENGEL
Abstract
THE statement in NATURE of the 15th inst. (p. 575) that rackarock is “blasting gelatine” or “nitroglycerine with compressed gun-cotton” is incorrect. Rackarock is simply powdered potassium chlorate, impregnated with an inexpensive oily combustible, such as coal-tar oil, and is one of my safety-explosives, which I discovered in 1870, patented in England, April 6 and October 5, 1871, and described more fully in the Journal of the Chemical Society for August, 1873, under the title: “On a New Class of Explosives, which are non-Explosive during their Manufacture, Storage, and Transport.”
