    • If it turns out to be pyrite, you can take a bit and crush and pan.  That will show any free gold.  If there is gold in the pyrite, it can be separated chemically, and won't show crushing.  The chemistry is well beyond me of separating gold from pyrite. If it were gold, you could also crush it, but I'd think hard about whether there's a specimen inside.  Crushing would ruin a specimen.
    • Thanks, guys. I suspect pyrite myself. By the way, how do you edit a post? I don't see an edit button anywhere. I mentioned hiking 15 miles, and didn't mean to claim I did that each day...LOL At 69, those 15 mile days are well-behind me. I did do 15 miles over the three days,  but the longest day was 6.8. If I tried to do 15, I'd still be laying out there. In fact, coming off the hill, I got a reminder of how I felt. See below.  
    • To me its layed out like pyrite. But it does have the color. If that was gold, the GoldBug would definitely bang on it. And other VLFs. Thats a pretty good size chunk in there.
