Another Detectorist Finds Massive 75k$ USD+ Gold Nugget in Australia!

It's becoming a trend these days, this is the 2nd monster nugget we've reported on in almost as many months! This time from a metal detecting prospector and enthusiast from Ballarat in Victoria, AU.

Mr Day found the nugget after digging a small signal which turned out to be a bullet casing on an old farm pastureland. After digging the .22 bullet, the detector continued to give signal so he kept digging and unearthed the fist-sized monster about a meter deep.

Collectors from all over the world are already contacting Mr Day to purchase his find, gold nuggets this size are incredibly rare and hold much more value than their weight in gold to some collectors willing to pay a premium for a specimen this big.

Mr day proceeded to buy an even higher end metal detector shortly after his discovery, finding something like that would sure give us the old gold fever! Congratulations to him and we hope you all have as much luck in your hunts!
