    i believe this is the correct color

    regrettably my phone does not like trying to focus on really small things up close.

    4 pieces of very small gold, these were in the material in the glass vial.

    Finding placer Gold is an experience that is hard to describe. It's not all about the monetary value. Swirling around that dirt in the pan until almost nothing but the heavier materials are left in the pan and seeing those bright yellow particles usually in a nice contrast provided by the jet black magnetite is just a rewarding experience. It makes for a great family day out and having that glass vial with your found Gold on the kitchen table is priceless.

    I've taken mom (84 now) Gold panning from California to Maine and she loves bringing out those vials at family events. Work your way upstream until it stops

    Congratulations, you're now a sick puppy like the rest of us here.
    The 1st is the hardest to find and most rewarding no matter how small or few
    Looks like gold but kinda hard to tell in the pic. Fill the vial with water and it will magnify them some. My field test is to put shade over it and if it still has a gold color then it's the real deal.
    I'm a drinker with a heavy prospecting problem and I'm out of dirt again

    piece number #5 is much smaller and went straight into the bottle with the other 4 pieces.

    this is piece #6 it is much bigger and the camera on my phone could see it quite well.

    Now you will be hooked! Here is A quick pan form one of our customers survey I worked on last night to show the nice gold color. This is from a hard rock mine. It was a small sample of 5lbs. He is one happy miner! After crushing down to 200 mesh and running across our water table it came out to 3.7 ounce per tonne! Click image for larger version.

    these 50 mesh things are bad enough, anything smaller than my 100 mesh screen, i put in a 2 liter bottle and drop in some mercury, i have the bottle sitting in a home depot bucket full of water, every day i give it a good shake then back in the bucket.
