What a beauty - almost 2 Pounds!!!

Recommended Posts

Check out this monster nugget that was recently found with a Minelab GPX detector. This solid slug weighs in at a whopping 23-ounces, or 720-grams!!! It is definitely one of the larger pieces I have seen in the past few months. Fortunately I was allowed to post the photo, but asked to not say a whole lot more until the finder can really hunt the area out. This is truly an awesome piece of gold, and I tip my hat to the lucky and hardworking detectorist who dug it. I look forward to seeing if it has a big brother hiding somewhere nearby! ;)

Hey Ron, no this piece was just dug a couple of weeks ago, and isn't from CA. Below is the Butte Nugget; they do look a little similar.

Yep, not the same. The Butte Nugget was 75 oz, about 6 Lbs. Still, an impressive piece!
