avoid breathing the dust from it.
the nutrient analysis and trace nutrient levels are going to depend upon the actual deposit itself. so short of doing a nutrient analysis you won't know precisely what it is.
which is ok, just use it as a garden soil amendment a few weeks before planting and see what happens. if you get a lot of green growth it is high Nitrogen and should only be used for plantings that need that kind of supplementation. otherwise it may be more Phosphates.
