256g Nugget Found with Minelab GPX 5000

A customer came into the BendigoGold shop recently showing us his 256 gram nugget (8.2ounces).

It was found on the side of a hill. The customer had stopped and seen a likely looking spot and decided to have a search with his Minelab GPX 5000 metal detector and Nugget Finder 17” x 11” mono coil and found a couple of tiny bits of gold. He then heard a massive loud signal and thought it would be junk but decided to have a dig anyway.

From only about 8 inches down in solid hard ground popped out this awesome nugget.

He was very lucky not to hit it with his pick.

It was found on Christmas eve 2013. What a fantastic Christmas present!
