Australian Man Discovers the Largest Gold Nugget Ever Mined Worth $300,000
A guy from the rural mining town of Ballarat, Australia is defiantly on the way to make a living being a “gold digger” Using a GPX Model metal detector, the unnamed guy has discovered a 5.5 kilogram nugget of gold. But this isn’t just any gold, this eight inch long, y-shaped chunk happens to be the largest nugget of gold ever found in history. The guy discovered the gold just two feet underground west of Melbourne. Experts have apparently valued the gold to be worth $300,000. Although this area of Australia has been discovering gold since 1851, it’s become very difficult to unearth anything over a kilo, making this fined extremely rare. The mad has said he wants to remain anonymous so no one will know will know the piece of ground where the gold was found. He’s hoping that the piece he found this week will lead him to an even bigger piece of the gold.
