    I REALLY don't think he should crush it. He should dissolve it the rock and maintain the specimen. OP, there's TONS of info about how to treat those specimens to get the most value out of it. Even if you don't sell it right away, it could be used for a rainy day.

    This one's thoughts as well. However if one happens to see or detect a 'Sweet spot' by all means use acid or a rock saw to slab up the 'Jewelry rock'. Be sure to post a picture or two. Thanks.

    Or use a volt meter at different areas of the rock to see if there's a nugget running through.

    Odd stuff coming out of that ore bucket. Any ideas? Acts like gold in a pan, soft too. Easily bent with fingertips.

    It looks like metal shavings from your mill. Using a hammer mill, chain mill or rotohammer you will end up introducing metals into your grind.

    Kinda what I thought to when I first saw them. Asked the guy who built the mill if he used any copper or stainless. He said ďnopeĒ just have to go get some more and try again

    Thanks for the input

    The austenitic manganese steels and hardfacing used in rock mills are non magnetic. Hardfacing can be anything from white to copper colored to black and is a surface material that often peels when when it is reduced by abrasion to a thin coating.

    Neither copper nor stainless steel would be effective in a milling environment. It looks like you have mill shavings in your grind. Check your hammers and I think you will find some of your hardfacing has peeled away from the face of the hammer.
