    Novice find. Help please

    We are clearing a mountain property to build in Boone NC area. Hitting lots of quartz type rock and lots of black sand. Also, there were mines really close by where many things have been found, garnets to gold. I wanted to post a few pics of what Iím finding. It doesnít float, doesnít dissolve in acid. Could it be?? Thoughts and any advice please. Thanks Click image for larger version.

    Crush and pan! Going to be tough panning with all that mica, but you might get a bit of gold out of it.
