    okay, chip some out, crush it up real fine.
    Then put it up a pan and pan it.
    And let us know.

    Quartz veins are all over. If it wasn't worked , prob for a reason but you NEVER know. Crush some f that material and pan it out and you might have some fly pop. Pretty cool if there was gold right there. Good luck, let us know!

    Not directly on the vein,but in the past rt in the same area found a solid quartz tailing pile and my AT Gold hit on something..dug down about a foot and found large quartz piece with very nice mineralization and a side covered in pyrite..had bluish purple colors near the pyrite embedded in the quartz.Think there is a pic of that piece in one of my older posts.

    Do you see the green staining? And the tell tale purple iridescent common of bornite? Those two things just scream copper sulfides to me. But of course there could be gold there as well. And looking at the country rock it appears to be a gneiss of some kind. Try to sample the quartz vein in a couple spots, but especially where it is pinched down the thinnest before opening back up. Good luck and let us know what you find. Soon as I am feeling better (got some kind of stomach bug at the moment) I will be posting another crushing quartz video and showing gold recovered.
    Sample till you find the hot spot, then mine it till its gone! Then start over...
