Nininger himself and his wife traveled to Springwater Saskatchewan to search for pieces. There were rumors of a large meteorite thrown down a well. Perhaps the depression Michael Farmer found was the depression left by an abandoned well. To go that far wasn't so out of thought, Nininger had a sister who was a school teacher in Saskatchewan.

I dig that piece up. It was 3 feet down and under a giant car hood. In a deep depression where garbage was dumped. Amazingly I removed the garbage from the depression and still had large deep signal. It was this 20 kg Springwater
