19th. February 2005 -- One of our interstate customers who is visiting the area for a prospecting holiday brought the gold nugget shown in the photographs above into our store to show us just hours after he found it. When we weighed the nugget for him we had to use metric scales as we did not have any troy weight scales large enough, it weighed 2184 grams which by our estimate is 70.22 troy ounces. He told us he had just found the nugget before breakfast this morning using his SD2100 fitted with a 25 inch elliptical coil. He said he was prospecting in a gully several miles N.W. of Dunolly and that the nugget was approximately 2 feet deep and that it gave a clear signal.
