A Miners Den Bendigo customer recently stopped by the store and showed us a lovely 194.2g gold nugget he had found using a Minelab GPX 5000 metal detector.

I went to a new spot and detected the old diggings for awhile. I decided to detect a flat area above the diggings where possibly a house had been built.

I got numerous targets but using the GPX 5000 with an 11" DD coil in discriminate mode this target sounded better than the rest.

Dug down about 2 feet and popped this 194.2g gold nugget.
