On This Day In 1869 The Welcome Stranger Nugget Was Found

Recommended Posts


While researching the Welcome Stranger nugget I found a story about the Welcome nugget.  The Cornish miners did really good!

Does anyone know any relationship between these two nuggets and/or the proximity?

The welcome nugget was found in a deep lead mine in what is now situated in the middle of the city of Ballarat ,and the Welcome Stranger was found by 2 partners near the surface of there mining claim in Moligual in Central Victoria . A cast was made of the Welcome however the the Welcome Stranger was broken up before a cast was made and replicas where constructed from photos.
