Coolant Filter w/ Gold

Thought you all might be interested in this info... A few weeks back I decided to do a test with the gold coolant I was running since studs were done...about 19k ago. My test was to run the coolant filter system to see what kind of "stuff" I collected in the filter. So I bought the system from diesel site and installed a couple weeks ago then ran for 950 miles. Changed filters yesterday and cut open to see what was there. The pictures show you what is in there...all in all it was NOT bad! I'm thinking all of the little particles is cast sand from when the block was cast. To continue my testing I plan on flushing the old gold out and replace with fresh gold when I do my oil again.
