Great Find Western Australia September 2018
This impressive gold nugget was detected by an experienced prospector in the Eastern Goldfields, Western Australia, September 2018. The finder had heavily detected the general area previously with earlier models of gold detectors to some success and was about to move when a small warble was emitted by their gpz7000 and 14" coil. After quite a lengthy dig this 70oz nugget was found standing upright on its tip at 85cm beneath the ground. The operator was sure that he had been over the area before so had not been heard by any other detector they had used. What a reward for their persistence, experience and use of technology.
