ID:	560957 ok... I came upon this ( discotal?) On a river float. Well my friends, it is welded to that there rock lol. So instead of destroying it accidentally I buried it and set place to memory. How do I safely remove it? Or am I going to have to paddle it still attached many miles?

    Looks interesting so it’s part of the mother stone still or is it just stuck? Can’t tell if it’s natural or not

      Pretty sure it's just stuck. The larger stone on bottom is a different stone even.

        Lol that's what I'm fearing. The stone it's attached to is HUGE! To heavy for canoo in such shallow river, to awkward for kayak, which is how I got there to begin with. Lol CHALLENGE!

      Hey Jake, That's a beauty. I'm not going to say because I would hate to be wrong.

          Also, an option I've been weighing. Get good camera out there and photo document it real well and leave it there.

        Can’t say if it’s a artifact or not… hard to tell its size from your pics… I’d use a large pry bar, if not attached she’ll pop right out…✌️

          I carry a screwdriver in my front pocket for the hard to remove objects. Just don’t pry against it go around it. Don’t carry it in your back pocket cause one time I forgot and sat in my truck and it ripped a big hole. My old truck

              CHUNKEY STONES






              Chunky or Chunkey, chenco, tchung-kee or the hoop and stick game, is a game of Native American origin. Chunkey was played between two opponents, one rolling a stone disc across the ground and the other throwing a spear in an attempt to place the spear as close to the stopped stone as possible. The game would often continue until both players were exhausted. The game originated about 600 CE in the Cahokia region that is now near St. Louis, Missouri. It continued to be played throughout North America in one form or another long after the decline of the Mississippian period about 1500 CE. Early ethnographer James Adair translated the name to mean "running hard labor." The intention of the games seemed to be the gathering of large groups of neighboring villages and even visitors. Gambling was frequently connected to the game, with some players wagering everything they owned on the outcome of the game. Losers were even known to commit suicide.

                Well. What do you all think?
                Right size, shape and local. Very weathered however, thinking why the hole is filled?

                    Maybe a wood or plastic wedge could help you detach it? Certainly looks man made.

                      Looks like a small milling stone like Tom suggested which could be old but not native old

                        Well I'll weigh in. As a stone mason myself I would take a rock hammer a plastic wedge and a small digging tool. From the picture the left side looks like loose material. Dig that side out and try to get under it as far as you can to give yourself prying room. Drive the wedge in under the material ( NOT THE ARTIFACT ) And loosen everything under the disk. Put your plastic wedge under the disk and do a little prying to loosen up more material. Take your time, don't rush. If it doesn't loosen up stop. Now there is another trick you can try. Buy or borrow a Automobile pump up door wedge. These are for unlocking locked car doors. Most police and fire companies have them. Place it under the disk after removing material as I explained above and slowly pump the thing up, It should pop right out. Kim
