Hi!

I have found some stones next to an old coppermine and I cant make out if is the ore or waste rock I have in front of me.

What do you guys think is this pyrite or chalkopyrite, or a mix? I'm new to this.

Hi, Quickclay, welcome to FMF.

If you need identification please read the basic tests you have to do:
Asking: "What is this? / Where is it from?"

To publish several pictures in the same post please read
How to add multiple photos to a Post

We hope someone can help you with your minerals.

Probably Chalcopyrite, A specific locality would also be useful.

Ok, how can u tell? :) They are from Sulitjelma in northern Norway, from a harbor? Near two of the mines there. All samples look to be Chalkopyrite or just some of them?
