Lovely 222.6 gram Nugget Found

A BendigoGold 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!
