    What does the assay say? Pics with very bad lighting tell nothing. Most good pick tell little. If gold is not clearly visible in the sample, only an assay will reveal what you have. If the assay does show values, only a proper interpretation of the data will tell how to properly treat the ore for recovery of values.

    Based solely on the images provided, I believe you have no gold. Many rocks are similar in color. My best guess is iron stained quartz.

    Time for more coffee.

    If these are random rocks, then no.
