    those look alot like the "Mohawk mine" southern ariz. good load for gold and silver, red iron smattered throughout the exterior of the quartz in a large vein the Copper would go to center and some of the lighter minerals would stick to the sides.. silver in black should be throughout much as the gold .. tiny.. as for the "motherload" in this type of rock your looking for about a 1.5 to 3.5 foot thick vein looking for the green and or red yellow of Sulphur running in between the quartz.Click image for larger version.

ID:	778011 the Silver bentonite is rather common, but is one of the few that can be cut to reveal its absolutely gorgeous metal structure.

    Over all! good spot to look... better get a monster crusher..the Metallic nodule on the front of the first rock looks to be silver, but I've seen this actually be a composite of titanium and magnesium,, would have to have it in hand to be definite on that. do you have any of these cracked down a fracture line in the Quartz?

    This is a close up of the ore above. What do you think of Spharelite? Possible? The areas I am in were known for gold, zinc, silver, iron and lead.

    Also, this rock matches the 1st ore picture you posted from the Mohawk Mine. This was also found on our Yellow Bird claim. Very heavy, magnetic so Magnetite and what else?? Pyrite is visible on the other side, but not shown on this photo.

    top one is Jasperiod, commonly has large loads of fine gold in it,, yours may have been reheated (IE sub crust and forced back up),, should also possibly have Calaverite Click image for larger version.

ID:	778969, i have seen this formation alot ,, its AuTe2 and a bugger to seperate ..lol

    the bottom one is a mixture of Chrysocolla, and lapped quartz with mineralization.. i would say that its really heavy due to the copper, magnesium, iron, silver, and titamium within the quartz.. in a scholars terms Copper Manto development immediately beneath the andradite garnet – epidote – carbonate – hematite skarn with green (chrysocolla) – cuprite – chalcocite (grey) and ochreous hematite – limonite developed in the oxide zone after copper sulfides.. lol but a good spot to look!

ID:	779622. makes for an unusual rock tho.. I would go to the closest stream where you found that and look on the INside of each bend with a pan or metal detector. Where there are black sands there might be gold!

    possible Glacial deposit?Click image for larger version.

ID:	779909, Glaciers deposited huge amounts of gold onto the bedrock where they receded. the off side to this is also the largest deposit of Uranium was deposited this way too, Leading to Nevada Arizona and New Mexico, having high concentrations of many metals after "Snowball earth" about 1.8 billion years ago. More recently there have been good finds of Gold deposits in glacial bays in Alaska, and Prince Edward sound Canada.. Worth a look if you know where to look at the bedrock. IE the kettle lakes, or the streams or valleys that fed them.

    Those are nice pictures Dusted. I am taking my Gold Bug out on my clubs claim tomorrow. I'll have a few new rocks to ID tomorrow. I hope there is some visible gold in them!
