Repair AKG C416 PP

I have an AKG C416 PP mic that I am trying to repair the wiring on. I finally got the cable between the capsule and the clip to come out of the flexible gooseneck tube. It was glued in at both ends.

When I removed the wire, a bunch of gold powder came out of the tube. It's hard to see in the pic but the wire is coated in it and it leaves residue on my finger if I touch the wire. Is this some kind of conductive polymer? Not sure if I need to source something to replace what's on this piece of wire/in the gooseneck (I'm replacing it as it's too short to reuse).

For all I know it could be just residue from the cutting of the metal gooseneck tubing!

The service manual says to use Loctite 424 or similar at each end of the tube to achieve strain relief but I'm pretty sure that's clear in colour so don't think that's what I'm seeing.
