            There's a lot of host rock / vein material but several once's of gold. My son's out prospecting and I'm cleaning gold I'm shocked by how much is showing. Some of the pieces are pure gold well at least all gold flat like pieces of bacon.

                      I cleaned some more of the ore a long soak in muriatic acid. Most of the host rock and oxidation is gone leaving 70 grams of specimens. Click image for larger version

                        Doesn’t muratic acid dissolve gold or were you using a diluted version

                      My son just called from the dealer it's the real deal and the samples are worth spot price.
