Awesome score! I hope to find a gold nugget some day, be pretty tough in my parts though. Thanks for sharing!

Saw that on the news yesterday. Would be any prospector's dream find.

This article was shared on facebook by my local library. The library also offers several items that patrons can check out for 3 days with their library card such as string trimmers, hedge clippers, and... a metal detector. Several patrons saw the article and were gushing that they really need to go get this metal detector from the library and get searching!

Doesn't seem to include any instructions or a digger - wonder what the local parks are going to look like

For those interested...here's the coil the nugget was found with. On Coiltek's Instagram

EDIT: 14x11 inch Elite Coil (don't know whether the picture is legible)
