to bad your across the state from me....... if there is a metallic substance, it will sink after sitting and due to the slipperiness of oil it usually wont stick to items unless they're larger particals
another thing here is that the "gold" color your seeing is the oil, a good test would be to mix up the oil really well and then pour some through a coffee filter into a small container, you really only need a couple ounces, then very lightly so it doesn't rip, spray brake or carb cleaner on the filter to remove the oil from any particles that may be in your oil, this will give both you and us a better handle on what material that is in the system
another option is throw a new filter on it, new oil, then run the motor for about 15-20 minutes until its fully warmed up and give it one or two slow revs until about 3k rpms, then remove the filter and cut it open to check the media for any particles
btw, i wouldn't recomend penzoil at all, best oil for your car is royal purple and i dont say this just because of their adds, ive seen tests that prove the quality of their oil and ive seen quit a few bad results for amsoil, though still better than penzoil, just a friendly FYI, these were all privately done tests
