I found a big patch of pyrite in a quartz vein. What is the likelihood of it containing gold??

How far away is the nearest known occurrence of gold?


Where it is, there it is.

Most of the pyrites are in the host rock which is slate.

can be a good indicator if its a type of layer/vain of pyrites in the slate or in-between the slate and a quartz reef

In places like Victoria, most pyrite in slate is older than gold and not directly associated with it. Why not dolly your sample and pan it?
