Black Nugget

Yo All...Got back out to my "black nugget" patch (Ran in to Lou R. on the way,) and went up a little side wash....Deep down in some hot red crumbly bedrock I found this chunky little 0.5 gram nuggy...I think the black rock is hematite...Someone suggested manganese but I don't think so...I found some purple, black and white "ore-ish" looking vein that could be the source and the hematite is more pronounced in it....

The coin is an Aussie 1942 3-pence my Dad got when he was there during WWII...I think it's silver....Cheers, Unc
