    • Thanks John & Clay. Though not the answer I was hoping for;). So I guess there's no harm in smashing it to see if anything sticks? Though it is a pretty specimen. Unless it's beauty was perpetuated by the eyes of this fool as he spent many a minutes captivated by its extrinsic value. Guess I'm susceptible to the fever. Are there any non-destructive test that I could do such as continuity. How reliable are the results from a multimeter in determining gold presence? A small bag of 'gold' flour was amongst the collection of rocks. The flour floated on water until I added a bit of soap then it sank. Neither rock nor flour are magnetic. I was also looking for a local supplier for an acid test kit for gold in the Toronto area if anyone knows of one. Thanks again.

LOL! Goin' to miss that end cut of the smoked meat! I'm sure someone will grab it and then find it is the most flavorful piece of the entire roast! ... That will be competition for me getting it next outing in the winter!!! You giys and gals enjoy the outing ... Mike F
