  • Rathburn Township (Sudbury District)

  • This mine has interesting mineralogy! The rust-white quartz vein material has a large zone of coarse-grained pyrite through it. both sides of the specimen have been sawn to show that there is rich gold streaking through the pyrite and in cracks in the quartz. Due to the saw cuts, the gold is smeared and shiny while the pyrite is golden but dull. Classic case of real gold in "fool's gold"! Unusual locality piece!
