Would You Do It, Down Under For A Fist Full?

Recommended Posts


Definitely wear a filtering mask.  My brother-in-laws brother was under his house for a very short time and contracted some kind of lung disease from mold .... he now needs a lung transplant.   Even a 1 in 10,000 chance ..... do you want  to be the 1?

But those porches and such are ideal places for those kind of finds....... great hunt.  You have to like treasure hunters that think outside the box...... like privy hunting ..... ya just never know.

Hope they got to keep their haul, or at minimum a significant percentage of it.  I have two 150+ year old permissions coming up this year.  I need to review contract agreements.  Finding stuff is fun, but not getting to keep it -- not as much.

He does some great videos. The ones he used to do for you were works of art....Too bad Minelab quit paying people like Ryan who made youtube videos as I believe it gets a lot of folks excited about the hobby...

      After seeing all the giant gold found by the manufacturer of the X-coils in Russia recently I've been wondering which other people have found big nuggets.  We all know the likes of Reg Wilson and JR Beatty have found some mighty impressive boulders over the years and I'd like them to put their biggest in this thread too! there has to be some others who have stumbled across a biggin' 
      I will kick it off by showing my biggest nugget, 1.208 grams found with my Equinox 800

      Sure, it's not massive by any stretch of the imagination, for New Zealand however it's a pretty damn decent size rock.
      I'm sure everyone has a photo of their biggest nugget sitting there somewhere easy to access, after all you should be proud of it 🙂
      Anyway, it's not the size that counts, it's how you found it.  So if everyone can post a photo of their biggest that'd be great, no matter how small that biggest is....  It could turn into a pretty cool thread if everyone participates.
      Thanks 🙂

      These are from Brazil.
      Some very nice gold with some serious specimen value, but not any more...........
      And you thought only Arab Africans did this to their gold.
       If anyone speaks Portuguese, perhaps you can tell us what is said and written.
