    Mineralized Quartz Cut From Quartz Vein

    Hi

    First time posting. Here is a mineralized quartz cut from the quartz vein below, it has not been panned yet, due to my impact mill being made. Is this high grade gold ore?

    Here is a sample ore from the vein

    Take a few samples every five feet or so from the vein and crush and pan out.Mark a seperate bag as to know where each sample came from.It's only ore if it's payable to work.If you do not want to crush just pan out the dirt,clay and small quartz chips slowly.If you've a good amount of gold..pan into another pan or tub.Any color out of a quartz vein is worth further sampling.

    Good information and thanks for posting.
    Yep if one finds any color it worth sampling around that area as better values may be near by.

    You'll never know if it's worth messing with until you have an assay.

    A "Fire Assay" will show almost all of the values in a given sample including values one may not even be looking for per "Assay ton".
    Crushing and processing a ton will give one a very good idea of the recoverable values for a given process or processes per ton sample material (test material). One may choose to not recover trace amounts of some values depending on the costs and time to recover.

    Thanks all for your prompt responses. I will finish building my mill this week and process samples from the vein and report my finding here.

    Forgot to address the question is this high grade gold ore? Besides just crushing and panning you may want to try different gold type metal detectors with different coils to spot some higher grade rocks before crushing.
    Not that you will find a lot of good rocks however can cut down on the number of rocks during the sorting process. You never know just one or two good rocks can really stand out from the rest in a pile of rocks.
