Monster ancient gold ingot – 81.54g, 40.82mm L, 21.05mm W, 10.02mm T – reported as treasure to museum
The guys headed back to sunny NA on Saturday to end the first half of the season but they certainly went out with a monster
bang. We are back out hunting again in late Feb.
On the very last morning Wis Tim popped the biggest chunk of gold I have seen at nearly 3oz of pure yellow ingot. Then
5 minutes later and just 6 feet away Tim popped a 2nd gold find below, beautiful ancient gold ring.
I have updated this years gold finds page and the total so far is 33.
I have updated the latest finds page with loads more great silver and relics
