What an іпсгedіЬɩe discovery! Unearthing a сoɩoѕѕаɩ gold nugget is truly a once in a lifetime find.

Prospecting on weekends for over ten years in search of coins, relics and gold, he had made a pact with a couple of his closest friends to split the proceeds on any large gold finds found when the group went prospecting together.

After alerting his cohorts and having a few celebratory beers, the next order of business was to decide what to do with the nugget. “It’s like catching a big fish and not knowing what to do with it! Where do we put it? I washed it in water, covered it in aluminum foil and kept it in my oven on the first night.”

A Ьіt life changing, but it doesn’t mean he’s going to quit his job and retire. Rather, he said he plans to рᴜгсһаѕe a van and travel across Australia when time allows, mixing travel and sightseeing with his love of detecting and prospecting.

As for the nugget, which is now sitting in a bank vault, a replica is currently being constructed and auction plans are in the works. According to Minelab, it is expected to sell for more than US$190,000 (A$250,000).

Last year, another Australian gold prospector discovered an 87-ounce gold nugget during a prospecting trip near Wedderburn, a town located less than 225 km (140 miles) from Melbourne. That one, called Fair Dinkum nugget, fetched $133K (A$175K) at an auction.
