18 Ounce Gold Nuggest Found In California!!!

Wow! People are still finding little fortunes; 18 ounces of gold is more like a gold rock than a nugget. If you think that is bid then another gold boulder was found in Australia and it weighed 145 ounces.

Here's my source http://www.coinworld.com/news/precious- ... m_content=

I wouldn't mind finding 1 ounce. I prospected for a few months about 4 yrs. ago. I live in Virginia, It was the leading state for finding gold before it was found in California. They say you find it where it is, but it wasn't where I was. lol

Yes it was at first, I panned some streams, and processed some sand and dirt. I thought I was doing okay until I found out my stash was fool's gold. If I ever try again, I'll work some streams and banks at the base of a mountain.
