As for Paul, he is really ugly and just can't accept it.
is there a way to test my crystals to see if i have found gold? i have found some that I'm positive is pyrite but i have also found some that totally looks like gold but what do i know.... i read about some makeup
Dang so obvious now youve said it Blow torch I have
Just got back from the little jewellery repairer, who tested the rock using acid, confirmed there is definitely a percentage of gold in the rocks, except it is of such low volume it would require a huge process in order to extract sufficient quantities. Apparently if it was not gold it should have turned green with high strength acid, observed to be giving off serious vapour even before it made contact with the rock. Anyone know where I can get my hands on some dynamite?
Since this is an oil shale you found the gold in, it is gold that has been eroded from its source a redeposited in another place - probably a fern swamp or bog. So finding the source would be a better deal. Placer deposits such as this are not common.Do some research first - I just did a quick search and this is what I came up with this: Epithermal gold mineralisation - Devonian rocks N. Britain. Publicationhttp://www.ukge.co.uk/UK/prodtypebook.asp?PT_ID=165Also research placer gold deposits.
Perhaps I should reconsider my total capitulation to Bass? What do you think, Andrew? Were the fractures associated with the pockets of speckled deposits?
Can someone identify these impregnations in what appears to be oilslate with a soft crmbly graphite texture.
