  1. I was in my apartment in Santiago with the kids and it was a wild ride for a few minutes but we are all fine - it happened 3.30am last night and it is 2.30pm the next day and I still don't have power.

There is gold in a number of areas in Chile - most of the old timers will tell you there are no nuggets, only fine gold but this is not the case. I read a report recently from a gold miner of exploration in Valdivia and they did a 300m trench and found a substantial number of nuggets between 1gram and 126 grams so there are nuggets.
