Is this gold telluride?


This is in bags of paydirt that was bought online from a gold mine. I believe it could be calaverite but im not sure. Any comments that could help me would be great.



Look with a loupe for little spheres of gold on the surface. If you see them, then you have roasted telluride/calaverite gold ore. That is how they used to do it in the gold rush days.
