SOURCE .AUSTRALIA

WEIGHT OF GOLD NUGGET IN HEADER

 

SIZE OF GOLD NUGGET     40 X 33 X18   MM

 

 

 

 

 

THIS NUGGET CAME FROM AN AREA IN VICTORIA WHERE I USED TO FOSSIK FOR GOLD SOME 30 YEARS AGO.

NOW MY BROTHER LIVES IN THIS AREA AND HAS JOINED THE LOCAL FOSSIKERS CLUB

SO WHEN I RETIRE I WILL GO TO THIS AREA AS I KNOW ALL THE VALLEYS AND THE INTERESTING PLACES TO FOSSICK FOR GOLD .

30 YEARS AGO I WOULD CAMP IN THIS AREA EVERY WEEKEND.

 

ONCE I SET UP OUR TENT IN A RIVER AND AT 2 IN THE MORNING, THE RIVER FLOODED AND WE AERE LUCKY TO GET OUT OK

ANOTHER TIME I SET UP CAMP OVER FIGHTING BULL ANTS NEST, NOT A GOOD IDEA THEIR BITES REALLY HURT..

ALL FOR FUN OF LOOKING FOR GOLD

WE STAYED AT MY BROTHERS HOUSE IN LONG GULLY A FEW TIMES BUT HE HAD TO MOVE OUT FOR A YEAR AFTER A SINK HOLE APPEARED IN HIS BACKYARD.

THE HOLE WAS 30 FEET WIDE AND IT WAS THE OPENING TO AN OLD GOLD MINE THAT WAS JUST COVERED UP, AS THERE WERE SO MANY OLD GOLD MINES IN THIS AREA, AFTER A WHILE HIS LAUNDRY FELL OFF THE BACK OF HIS HOUSE BUT THE COUNCIL AND INSURANCE PAID TO FIX IT UP.

THAT'S THE DANGER IN LIVING IN THIS AREA AS SO MANY HOLES WERE JUST FILLED IN AND A LOT SINK HOLES OPEN UP EVERY YEAR.

 

TODAY ONLY 2 % OF THE WORLDS GOLD IS FOUND IN NUGGET FORM

LARGER NUGGETS OVER ONE GRAM ARE HIGHER IN PRICE AND NUGGETS OVER 5 GRAMS ARE AT PREMIUM PRICE.

GOLD FOSSIKERS CHARGE OVER 10-15 % EXTRA FOR NUGGETS OVER 5 GRAMS AND IF ARTISTIC DESIGN WILL CHARGE OVER DOUBLE THE SPOT PRICE FOR GOLD

MOST GOLD NUGGETS FROM HERE ARE FOUND IN QUARTZ VEINS AND PURE AND CLEAN, SOME FOUND IN CREEKS ARE WORN MORE WHERE AS OTHERS HAVE RIDGID SHAPES

MOST GOLD FROM THIS AREA RANGE FROM 99 TO 99.6% PURE

 

THERE ARE 31.1 GRAM OR 480 GRAIN TO ONE OZT..

 OZT.=TROY OUNCE WHICH IS THE USED MEASURE FOR GOLD.
