    Looking for arrow heads and meteorites , metal detecting,vintage video games ,and working out.
  1. That's pretty cool that you found the connecting pieces definitely a rare find.
  2. Those would definitely strike my eye as well. looks pretty good to me!
  3. That isn't such a bad idea I might take you up on that.
  4. Well it was a fun journey but its looking like it might be the end of the road for this particular piece I'm going to continue to keep an eye out.happy hunting for you all.
  5. I have got a magnet underneath the Frisbee!
  6. Well I did a pin test the flakes don't appear to crumble looks like they fold and dent into a ball ,I'm thinking if it is gold its probably mixed with pyrite.like I've said before gold and pyrite travel together.So if there is gold there unless you want ingnots of gold and pyrite.gona probably need some other way to get the purity.
  7. Here is the video keep your eye's on the finer mesh there on the left potion of the screen.Like I said the gold pieces are very tiny and can be seen with the eye a little better.But there does seem to be quite an abundance of them. I'm no expert but i'm thinking chemical extract for this one.
  8. This is about half of that one gram piece in the green Frisbee gold pan, I'm seeing lots of very very fine gold flakes.If it is gold i'm thinking that the pieces are so small that panning might not get you very far.Like i said there are lots and lots of tiny gold colored metal flakes.Far more can be seen with my eye than with the camera. the vid is uploading to you tube will be ready shortly. Here is a pic any way for now.
  9. I got the frisby gona crush it in a coffee can!
  10. . You all seem to have a pretty good idea at what your doing with the pan, This rock may be just the tip of the iceberg literally . I'm gonna crush the small piece at some point here for sure and attempt to pan at least with a Frisbee until the gold pan comes in the mail, that rock is is a little on the hard side its literally like a piece of steel i actually had to cut that little piece off with a hack saw, at one point there i took a 5 pound sledge hammer to it with not much more than a couple scrapes ima try and fashion some type of mortar and pastel i'm sure one way or another ill get er d
  11. I may have to invest in a pan sooner than later I rather do it with atleast alittle rechnology. If your gona do something do it right.The tiny one gram peice may be subject to the crusher I'll keep ya posted.
  12. I defiantly would like to get it identified locally, but with the economy the way it is around here I'd probably have to take leaps and bounds and jump through hoops to get er done.Not to mention with industry the way it is.I've been considering grinding it up or a portion of it via bench grinder.If there's a chemical way to extract or if panning is the answer I'm still uncertain. It certainly wouldn't take a whole lot of effort to to pan once all ground up I'm sure with alittle bit of thought taken.
  13. I think from what I've been reading it might be a piece of oceanic crust so either at one point in time the location where the rock was found was once ocean floor and is a product of tectonic plate movement.Either way if it was once oceanic crust.It could have been deposited glacially,I think the location in question however may be on the tip or end of the green stone belt so if it is green stone there could very well possibly be a vein.But like I've said before I still haven't found one like it. weather or not there is or isn't a lot of gold in the piece as a project or competition if some m
  14. well I'll defiantly keep a look out for some good au.I guess the gold extraction is possible with enough elbow greese.
  15. I've been looking up arsnogoldpyrite gold ore and green stone gold ore,or sometimes green shist getting quite a bit of info from looking up these rocks.Check into that if it tickles your fancy.Here is a vidya for your viewing pleasure .Also hear is a close up pic of the rough interior of a piece that got chipped off so you can see the metal grains .
