    Metallic red flakes found in concentrates.

    So, my dad and I went out dredging for 4 days, and on the last day's cleanup, we began to get some small, metallic red flakes in our cons that looked like the shiny red coating on fishing hooks. It was heavy and sat with the gold and black sands and I couldn't find anything that it could be. I will be cleaning up the gold later and I will see if I can get a few pics.

    Might be the red version of uranothorite I read about in the Peter's and Purches Creek area, or might be rubies. Isolate a sample and have it tested.
