Subject: C900 - oil showing significant concentration of metallic particles

Hi folks, My 1982 C900 is due for it's annual major service prior to rego renewal soon, but recently I noticed during fluid checks that the engine oil has what I'd consider an overly high concentration of metallic particles in it. To my mind this means either bearings or piston rings are in need of replacement. The engine probably does need a complete strip down and rebuild, but is there a way to tell what type of metal(s) the particles are to get an idea which engine parts they're coming from?
