    The first question I would ask is: were those collected from place with a history of producing gold? If the answer is yes, then definitely crush and pan. If the answer is no, Id still crush and pan, just because itd be a good fun project and you never know...

    It looks like pegmatites. Might have better luck with crystals in that vein.

    Do an almost always reliable visual check....Check the color in full and shaded light. Gold will still have an unmistakable golden color in shaded light. If the color blanks out or changes, it is most likely not gold.
    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    only one way to find out! personally I have had zero luck crushing choice pieces. However I am getting some by crushing my non magnetic concentrates.

    If it doesn't beep or zip on the detector I wouldn't mess with it. Some guys might have the ways and means to crush tons of rock, but for the small guy its gotta be higher grade, to be worth the time. Maybe I don't think big enough, but thats my advice.

    It will also miss A LOT of visible gold.

    Have one use one often However.. they don't have much depth. On "specks"

    I have quite a bit of quartz stock piled that yielded visible gold when crushed. And never made a chirp on my Falcon.


    "Hunting" with one is extremely slow going.
