    Very possible!

    Here is one example.......

    STATE: Alabama
    COUNTY: Talladega

    At Riddles Mill district, located in southeast part of the county, was the most important locality where gold mining was carried on in the Talladega County. The Riddle's Mine consisted of a 100 foot deep in quartz veins which contained lode gold, with silver and pyrite in depth. In a lead extending from Riddle's Mine, the Woodward Tract had gold, with silver.

    Thanks GG. I actually found this one in Coosa county. I've tried a lot around the Riddles mine story mine areas but not sure where to go. I know where the mines old locations are map wise but getting to them is a different story and i've panned some at that creek that flows through there with not much luck. I need to find better areas around there.

    Yup--it is too blurry to tell, and of course you can have gold and silver in the same quartz sample. What have you used so far to tell if it's gold or not?

    Depending on the quantity of the concentration of metal, acid test, streak test, specific gravity might be out because of two metals in the sample, not one. However--if it's a quality specimen--why in the world would you want to smash it up?

    Lanny.....lol only reason i would consider smashing it would be for the good stuff on the inside. But it is a very beautiful specimen it weighs around 30 lbs. OK also what type of acid are you talking about? im not very good with chemicals that can harm oneself and the streak test, you talking about the silver rub right? Ok now to the gravity part you really have me confused on that one. please advise
