A Miners Den Bendigo customer recently showed us some of his great finds.
One was a 222.6 gram gold nugget.
The nugget was found using a Minelab GPX 5000 metal detector with a Nugget Finder 14" x 7" Elliptical mono coil.
It was found at a depth of around 12". The ground was very hard & dry, it was virgin ground.
The nugget was very dirty when pulled out after cleaning in hydrochloric acid it weighed 10 grams less.
What a great find!! Not a bad day's prospecting!
