Hi we found what appears to be gold inside shale rock found at Runswick bay. We are beginners at fossil hunting and cant seem to find much info about gold on the net, the gold smells a lot like diesel? Any help appreciated
Thanks
Jodie

Hi, certainly looks like gold but i think you'll find its iron pyrites or fools gold, as the name suggests it can be mistaken for the real thing.
Well spotted, Happy Hunting.
