The nuggets could fetch up to 30% more than their estimated value by weight if they are sold to a collector, according to the release. “I reckoned we were in for a chance,’ Shannon told Australian breakfast chat show Sunrise. “It was in a bit of virgin ground, which means it’s untouched and hasn’t been mined.’ The pair had been waiting months for a permit that would allow them to start searching for gold in the area, according to the release.”

USAGOLD note:  Nice find …… How do you spend your Saturdays?
