13th. September 1997 -- Today we were shown the above gold nuggets found by the prospecting partners Tom Bennett & Neil Saville approximately 4 weeks ago. The nuggets were found at the back of Moliagul in Iron Bark forest on a hill and in wash. The largest nugget weighed 1 ounce 11 pennyweights 14 grains and was found 17.5 inches deep, the other nuggets weighed 10 pennyweights 13 grains, 8pennyweights 13 grains, 5 pennyweights 21 grains, 5 pennyweights 7 grains and were 8 to 10 inches deep.
Tom & Neil are 2 of the few prospectors who are prepared to have us disclose their names and a few months back in an area just ten minutes from the Dunolly GPO found a patch of nuggets which yielded them a 98 oz., 44 oz., 32 oz., 16 oz, and many smaller nuggets for a total of 240 ounces. Unfortunately They have sold most of these before we had the opportunity to photograph them although they have said we may photograph the 16 ounce one which they still own.
