It looks like a freshly dug nugget by the dull appearance of the gold. I love when they come out of the ground!

I still want to go to Melbourne and/or Bendigo which is in that area. Now is not the time because it is too hot but who is willing to consider a two week trip?

Beautiful Golden Tomahawk with a broken handle ... wonder where the handle is ... another 50+ ounces maybe?! Congrats to the finder! Certainly made his/her start to the new year for sure!

That's a hell of a find. I'd like to know more of the details like what detector was used, depth of nugget,etc.Sure it will come out in time. Just wish we could find those over here in the states.

As Bill said it was a GPX5000, I read in one of the articles that the nugget was at 60 cm, which is 23.622 inches.

My nephews Bounty Hunter would have beeped that monster at 2 feet... Incredible find all the same.

Just to let you guys know, it arrived Saturday to the Tucson show. If I had a chance to stay Sunday, I could have held this sucker in my hot little hands. It's now owned by someone in the USA

Thats an amazing nugget. It is at the Inn Suites in Tucson right now for the Tucson Rock and Gem Show. I saw it this last weekend. The same guys have some really nice multi ounce platinum nuggets from the Urals too.
