    Re: Found GOLD in the BRADSHAWS

    Nice. I found a gold seam along a piece of broken bedrock in a stream one time but the gold was paper thin like it had been plated. I also picked up a piece of quartz on C Street in Virginia City that had a decent silver clump and vein going through it. The darkness in the quartz beside the gold might be a silver salt.

    Hope you marked where you found it. This might start a new "lost mine" legend.

    That is wicked cool!!!!!!!!
    have you weighed it in water yet to get the actual gold weight?
    If the Rock is 20lbs there could be 1-4 LBS of that stuff we hunt.
    12,000.00 per lb woooooooooooooooooooooooow!!!!

    VERY VERY EXCELLENT FIND!

    Just the gold I'm seeing on the outside of that rock makes this a banner find.

    My vote is in.

    Nice chunk, I'd say it would be worth alot more, as a specimen left whole, than it would for only it's gold content.
