8 lb gob of pyrite

Recommended Posts

Looks a little water worn in the pictures. Was it mined that way or found as float?

Lotsa Luck

Hi It came out of a vein I just by chance happened to be in a Vet Legion

and got into a conversation with a fellow that had worked in the mine in

his younger days and he said there were big open areas in the mine that

were as big as the building we were in,it was the ritches mine in the country

something like the Sixteen to One. You can look into one of the horizontal tunnels in

August and still see ice and feel a super cold air coming out of it just like air condition..

I have stumbled on numerous veins of that pyrite about a foot acrost near some of the creeks around here ..
