    Southern Michigan Gold ore? Or Poor man's Pyrite?

    I recently took a walk in my property in southern michigan and stumbled upon tons(literally) of these shiny silver and gold streaked rocks. Now I'm assuming that it is nothing but pyrite, however I figured I would post some pictures and hopefully get some insight from those with experience. Any information would be greatly appreciated. ThanksClick image for larger version.
