This beautiful spread of nuggets was found recently by a good friend of mine here in the southwest. He said that the entire patch fit inside a 200 square-foot oval piece of ground. Everything was found with his Minelab GPZ 7000. The nuggets all appear to be fairly rough with some attached host rock. What amazes me is the variation in color amongst the gold. Some nuggets appear more orangish suggesting copper, while the others look to have more silver in them. It makes me wonder if everything came from the same vein, or if perhaps there were several different stringers that all combined to form the patch. Either way this is a heck of a nice haul and it couldn’t have happened to a better guy! He asked to remain anonymous, so I won’t say much other than he is a true inspiration. He is dealing with some major health issues that would have had most folks bed ridden and depressed. Instead he is out there digging holes in the desert making the most out of each day. He is an amazing guy whom I’m proud to call a friend. As the Ozzies would say, “Good on ya mate!”
Hi everyone, Some friends and customers of mine that purchased the Minelab GPZ 7000’s sent over these photos showing off some incredible gold they have recently come across. The monster of the group has been nicknamed the “King Nugget” and weighs just shy of 5-ounces! I’m not sure about the weights of the other pieces, but check out those gorgeous specimens. The ribbons of gold shine on that brilliant white quartz! These are some amazing finds and I really appreciate them letting me share them here on the forum. I am sworn to secrecy right now, so I can only say they were found in the far western US. I am fully confident there will be more nuggets in their future and hopefully I’ll be able to post those as well. Congratulations guys – keep up the good work!
A friend just texted over this photo of a beautiful gold & quartz specimen that he recently detected with his Minelab GPZ 7000 here in Arizona. It weighs in at a bit over 8-grams. This is a great find and a wonderful addition to any collection! Thank you again for sharing with us!
Earlier this month a friend of mine in CA scored this beautiful nugget while out swinging his Minelab GPX 5000. This chunky little piece tipped the scales at just over an ounce (22 dwt) and was dug at a depth of 2 feet! Nuggets like this are truly a treat – congratulations to the lucky & hard working finder!
