Update: Confirmed by goldsmith using acid tests to be low-karat gold. The lump is auriferous. Smiley

Now have it assayed and see if you can find the source. It didn't just get dropped there, it probably came by way of natural means like a volcanic explosion. If that was nearby, you can bet there is more where that came from. Any ore that presents itself with visible gold in it is worth a fortune in today's market.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Yup the source is there. For safety's sake, I'm going to have to learn how to smelt the stuff discreetly. Am a total noob to this field; doing lots of research now.
