Beautiful 22.3 gram Gold Specimen Found

A BendigoGold Customer found a beautiful 22.3 gram specimen with quartz still attached.

It was found using a Minelab GPX 5000 Metal Detector using a 12″ x 7″ Nugget Finder Mono Coil.

The ground was highly mineralised and the specimen was found at a depth of about 10”.

Due to the high mineral level of the ground there was only a faint signal but the prospector was well rewarded with this beautiful piece.
