Two matched pairs of cut vein material from The Goodshaw showing good native gold. 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.
From the Bell Collection. Long time Bodie resident Bobby Bell (son of noted Bodie miner Lester Bell) located some ground that was an offshoot of the Goodshaw vein and sunk a shaft in the early to mid 1900’s. It wasn’t successful, but he did mine a few boxes full of high grade. When Bobby left Bodie, he moved his big machine shop and his Bodie collection to Luning, NV. These rocks were purchased from Bobby Bell’s estate along with other mining equipment. Specimens here are less than 4".
