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... ???

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 [:(] Aviator [img]www.milpubs.com/aviator.gif[/img]

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. Aviator [img]www.milpubs.com/aviator.gif[/img]

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..
