Golden Sandwitch


Recommended Posts

Here is a nugget a friend of mine found the other day and we would like to find out if anyone else has found one and what the material between the gold is.

Maybe Chris Ralph could give us some information on this?

It is a beautiful piece and the first one like that we have found.

Thanks and have a AU day.

Yo Neil...Looks like the gold came from the contact zone between quartz vein and "country rock"....Hard to say what the country rock composition is from the photo...Nice nugget...Cheers, Unc

Hi All,

We are going back tomorrow with high hopes of finding more. Anyway we are going to give that area a real good going over.

Will post how we do and will try a magnet on the nugget.

By the way, it is ¼ oz.

Thanks for the comments.

Well, as so often happens, we went over the area of the sandwich nugget with 2 different size coils in hopes of finding more but no luck. It didn’t pan out (pun intended). It’s hard to believe there aren’t more nuggets there but if there are they aren’t close enough to the surface to detect. Oh well, maybe next time.

By the way the nugget doesn’t respond to a magnet. We think the material with the gold is slate.

Here are a couple more pictures:

Hi Frank,

Nice nugget and interesting.

My friend found a piece a few years ago that does have magnetic material in it that would cling to a magnet, but that material was black, not gray like this one.

Who said you can’t pickup gold with a magnet.http://www.nuggetshooter.ipbhost.com/style_emoticons/smileone/laught16.gif
