So this is the blue clay I've heard about... while digging in my spot I find stuff that blue. But not this dark of blue.

Yes siree Blue Clay,your picture of the chunk in your hand is showing  what appears to be a small spot of Malachite or chrysocolla copper.The Blue like you,I see is Azurite=5%Cu or better.I guess if it appears to be a big enough area,an assay would be the order of the day. You may have even more exotic copper(covellite?) hidding within.   {-applause-}

I always used a reputable lab so results could not be argued!  As well I ask for overages in all precious metals and I get Gold& Platinum included.  Included is 48 elements.So knowing the amount of arsenic gives understanding to environmental concerns.as well as Ca (calcite)As for the other elements they  can shed light on some pretty nice by-products to offer, if they show in the assay. On our Copper claim the amounts of Ag/Cd/Zn/Co and a few others help tweak interest. When we find the historical places where the gold was found,that will be worth a  <-party->. So as long as what ever work you get done is of reputable quality,that go's along way for  possible resale etc.  So 5% Cu is worth $338 US /t  I don't know the value of the clay.   http://www.kitco.com/pop_windows/kitcorockcalc.html

 {-applause-} {-applause-} I'm still amazed you can find anything in that jungle  <-yahoo_> Nice results and pretty  <-yes_> Still excavating for houses here. No winter yet.Still fires mostly out on the grass lands.  MCC so true... a reputable lab is critical. If its big enough and in the right place .5% copper can make you wealthy. Looking forward to the day you find the high grade gold that should be there. Your pics. are always a pleasure to behold  <-laugh->
just keep digging

Thanx SD,yours as well <-good_>  I  just got my truck tranny done and I'm back at it trying to find 2 fissures on claim which after 100yrs in this forest is almost impossible <-thinking->  The historic channel sampling of these yielded High Ag/good Au/good Cu and being almost 200' long there worth looking for.Pretty sure this pic is part of one.Logging,and old spur rd plays into the difficulty.Any way were havin pretty good weather in my neck of the woods for it being winter. Hope your doin well in your play ground <_miner_> <_miner_> <-good_>
