Springwater Pallasite

  
Springwater was found in 1931 in Saskatchewan, Canada.  It is classified as a Pallasite with a total recovered weight of 67.6kg.   Three masses of 38.5kg, 18.6kg, and 10.4kg were found near Springwater, 100 miles west of Saskatoon.  The Springwater Pallasite is unique in that it contains the mineral Farringtonite - http://adsabs.harvard.edu/full/1989LPI....20..220D

In the Fall of 2008, the Springwater strewnfield was rediscovered.  The area was thoroughly hunted since then by three of my friends and myself.  This link has some photos and videos of some of our hunting trips - Springwater  Meteorite  Hunt
