Huge Gold Nugget Found By Lucky Australian

Guess what he did after


Gold Nugget

Imagine having the shock of your life when you find a real gold nugget using a metal detector. This Australian prospector thought he was just looking at an old horseshoe when he saw a 4.1kg gold nugget at the southern edge of Central Victoria’s Golden Triangle. It is located in South Australia.

He said, “I thought it was rubbish at first, maybe an old horseshoe. About 12 inches below the ground, I could just barely make out the top of something.” Later on, he realized it was real gold as he dug deeper. “It wasn’t an old piece of steel in front of me. I had just unearthed a colossal gold nugget – a once in a lifetime find! (…) I didn’t think nuggets of this size were still around.”

He then named the gold “Friday’s Joy.”

The lucky Australian has been doing this during weekends for the past ten years. As soon as he discovered the gold, he went out for a few drinks with his friends (whom he’ll be sharing the money they’ll get with), wrapped the gold in foil and placed it inside an oven.

How much do you think the discovered gold will sell? Minicab reports that it is expected to sell for more than US$190,000. It was a lucky find indeed.
