Visiting prospectors strike it rich

Large gold find in our local Dunolly area

21st. May1997 -- Today two friends out for a days prospecting from Melbourne struck it rich in the Dunolly district. The two prospectors brought a gold nugget that they had just found into our shop to be weighed. Unfortunately I was out of town with our camera at the time that they came into the shop so as yet we have not got a photograph of the nugget to show. The nugget weighed 43 ounces 14 pennyweights and they said that they had just found it in our local area.

We are also hearing rumours of an 83 ounce nugget that was reportedly found about two weeks ago in the Moliagul area (approximately 18 kilometres north of Dunolly). As yet we have not seen the nugget or spoken first hand to the person who we believe may have found this nugget but our source of information is usually very reliable and he claims to have seen it.This district produced the "Welcome Stranger " nugget the largest gold nugget ever found so it is certainly possible from that area. - Well keep you posted.
