The Gold Basin Meteorite was a small asteroid that exploded in the earth's atmosphere about 15,000 years ago during the late Pleistocene, resulting in small meteorites being strewn across a field of 54 square miles. 

It was first found in November 1995 near Kingman, Arizona by Professor Jim Kriegh when we was prospecting for gold with a metal detector. The Gold Basin Meteorite is classified as an L4 stone olivine hypersthene chondrite, and is one of the oldest known terrestrial chondrite. It fell at a time when the climate was cooler and wetter and many of the fragments show oxidization shortly after impact.
