While there may be a few out there that would find that chunk collectible , practicality suggests dolly it up, smelting it and cashing out or storing ...My 2cents

Keep us posted on the final outcome if you would thanks, Terry.. I can't tell from here what the host material is, but it doesn't look like it would hold a cut or cab very well.. Actually, I don't think I've ever seen gold speci jewelry in any matrix other than (bleached) quartz.. Could be interesting, but sounds too dark...

I can't tell from photo what the host matrix is, but it doesn't look hard enough to hold together for cutting ... But, what the heck, you can try it and, if it doesn't cab up nice, you can always dolly it up and smelt it ... Still an impressive piece just for the gold content ...  It would be hard to do a SG test on it because it looks like a jumble of mineralization ... Good luck with it ... And thanks for sharinging! ... Cheers, Unc

I will post more on it when I get the info. Jason is out in the mountains now and it is pretty rugged. He flies in and out with a Robinson 44 Helicopter, and sometimes gets weathered in for several weeks.

Cab it is the way I would go and if it is to crumbly then you could always use a stabilizer like whats used on turquoise and other rock thats not stable enough to make into a cab  :popcorn: Mike C...:head:
