Some gold in Quartz.

16+ Oz in big one 4+ in middle one, gold yielded. Noted quartz is over 7 times larger.

That should show the different Quartz.

Those quartz pieces have some nice discoloration from mineralization,  especially where the gold specks are. They are not like the pure white bull quartz I’ve seen in some areas around the prospects and shafts I’ve  visited.

Today I visited the neighboring mountain (closer to the car) with a metal detector. My goal was to find a place for a thorough search.

  Visually examined the narrow creek, there were cobblestones with quartz veins, but did not find the place where they lived.

How promising is quartz?
