It appears to be a terrestrial micro-norite, which can contain much metal. Free metal is rare in gabbroic/noritic rock, but does occur. Rocks of the gabbroic and noritic compositions are mafic, and thus contain a relatively high iron content. The mineral assemblage in norite is mainly ca-plagioclase (labradorite), hypersthene (pyroxene), and minor olivine.
