The Goodshaw was one of many high grade gold in quartz veins at Bodie. Located in 1860, the district didn't really take off until the 1870's, even though Leland Stanford helped finance a mine there in 1864 called the Bodie Bluff. The Goodshaw has produced some rather spectacular disseminated gold specimens. This group contains about 20 rocks, each with at least one cut edge, that all show a few specks of gold. Here you get to take your chances on cutting the rest of the rocks to see if there are any concentrations of gold inside.

The specimens here, and in this group of four lots all were handed down in a longtime engineer's family. We sold a few specimens from this group several years ago.The raw ore specimens were cut in half, showing the native gold in banded quartz. The average Goodshaw ore assays 20 oz/t gold and 90 oz/t silver.
