I have a chunk of gold ore that I've been offered $300.00 for and would like to sell it and buy a Bullpup...   If anyone has any knowledge of it's value, I'd appreciate a post...   It's over 3 inches long and the stuff beside it is a crushed corner, that I broke off and crushed with a hammer...   ???  [img]http://www.printroom.com/_vti_bin/ViewImage.dll?userid=bigyeti&album_id=76841&image_id=38¶m=40841[/img]

Almost impossible to tell untill y ou have it assayed. Depends on how much gold is in the quartz or rock, and how pure the gold is. Try posting this at [url]www.tomashworth.com[/url] in the mining forum and there will lots of very knowledgable people to answer your question.

I am more of a placer miner than hard rock so I can't help you much more than this... Sorry  [:(]

I took it to a local gold hunter meeting..  That's where I got the $300.00 offer..   They said it was more valuable as a specimen than crushed and melted..

That will depend on how much "free gold" is in it. Post a pic on Tom's site with a size and weight and someone will get you in the range.

EDITED TO ADD: You should make sure it IS gold BTW. Try smashing a chunk of the gold looking stuff with the end of a screwdriver or something. If it shatters its pyrite, if it flattens its gold.

It's real...   The local gold diggers offered $300.00...    The guy who sold it didn't know what he had...   It was part od his dad's rock collection and the only one I bought..  Good Buy at $20.00..
