I tried both ways. Using the mixer it didn't matter a whole lot.

Kebwi,
I love the idea of your experiment and would be keen to see the results. Each of the slabs must be perfectly dry before doing the experiment because any moisture present will act as a conductor. I suspect that the material density would correlate directly with its conductivity.

I think I read a post about density vs. conductivity in cal-sil boards and I believe an authority stated it was opposite.

Correct, MK1, as a rule it is inversely proportional.

If you add vermiculite to the mixture it will make it less dense and a better insulator or poorer conductor.
