15 LBS OF EXTREME HIGH GRADE & HIGH MINERALIZATION RARE GOLD SILVER & COPPER ORE HOSTED BY A BRILLIANT WHITE QUARTZ MATRIX. The mineralization is off the charts.
Pyrite, Iron staining, vugs, metallic luster, green SCHIST, fine GOLD, SILVER, COPPER and more are what can be found throughout the entire lot making it the epitome of what California GOLD, SILVER & COPPER ORE is. This is considered a rare piece due to the massive amount of material just like this that was removed from the area during the gold rush.
If processed correctly this amazing material will surly reveal all of the treasures that it holds. WHERE DID IT COME FROM: This piece was pulled directly from the same site where the "Crown Jewel" was found in Jamestown, California. The Crown Jewel is a massive leaf gold specimen found in 1992, at the Jamestown /Harvard Mine by the Sonora Mining Company. It weighs a whopping 44 pounds, and is the largest crystalline gold structure in existence.In addition to the massive nugget, the Sonora Mining Company recovered unbelievable amounts of gold from the site that include 12 ounces of gold per one ton of material on several different occasions. Today the Sonora Mining Company is gone but the site is still rich with gold, silver and copper ore. The area where the mine is located was referred to as the "queen of the southern mines" by the early miners during the gold rush due to the massive amount of gold, silver, platinum and copper being extracted from the area's rich pay dirt. The area was eventually dubbed the "Motherlode" which is still a commonly used term today. There are no guarantees that any amount of precious metal can be "mined" for profit or for any other use for the following reason: Mining includes locating, extracting and recovering precious metal from hard rock or sediment.
This is a difficult process that relies heavily on the knowledge and experience of the person mining the material to be successful. A lack of experience and/or a mistake can result in the precious metal being lost to the process.
