Check that trash carefully

Post  deutran on Thu Jul 20, 2017 9:01 pm

Almost threw this 16.55g speci away thinking it was a piece of trash iron from the old timers.Rubbed it a couple of times to reveal a spec of gold.

After cleaning in a few acid baths a couple of grams fell out with the ironstone,no quartz in this one.Ended up 12.85g of gold.

My partners unusual find for the day.

Very nice iron stone specie there Steve. T06 Congrats for a nice find and your partner for the snake buckle. Q27 I found a couple of those about 30yrs ago and still have them today.

Cheers.

Mike.

That's terrific mate. I can see why you nearly threw it away.  T06   cheers Pete.

ps The old timer probably overlooked it as well.
