Well, I will be talking to a geologist who works at our local museum on Monday. I have no idea which labs he would be using to examine my samples. For
all I know, he may have a laboratory capable of discerning the contents of the residue, on the museum premises, at the local university, or indeed
access to a personal lab at his own home!
Until I speak to this fellow though, I have no idea which labs he may need to use. However, I will be retaining the first two samples I took as a
matter of good practice. If the geologist turns out being a bust for one reason or another, I will give my cousin a call. He tinkers with the innards
of complicated medical machinery, like MRI, and X-Ray machines, and has degrees in various sciences, coming out of his ear holes. If he doesn't find
himself able to identify the stuff, then I am sure one of his old university chums will be able to figure it out. However, he is an intensely busy man
(apparently there is always some colbalt-60 needing his attention... Nuff said) and I will hold off bothering him about it, until I have attempted to
deal with this using the more local resources available to me. Dude lives in Bath these days, and that is not exactly a short ride away.
