Hi.Dan, get yourself a little bit of swimming pool cleaner.(muriatic) content.Afew drops in a glass vial will do.If it is platinum it will turn the liquid purple.Just saying,Luck Mcbain.
I started out with nothing Istill have most of it.

swallow that little piece, and wait a few days...then go get a blood or urine  test for heavy metals......ask them to test for platinum....and see what else shows up . ;) ;D

Great tip re: a test for platinum McBain, thanks!

I have to start being more methodical about keeping black sand for the winter.

All that coarse gold is distracting  8)
