Introducing the Goose Egg Nugget (22.46 oz Speci)

Recommended Posts

This nugget was named by Grandpa John. He was one of the first people to see it after I found it. I found it while hunting alone (Thanksgiving morning) and everyone of my friends I have told about it said don't tell me where you found it (but I want to see it). You have more work to do in that area and when you are finished then let us know more of the details.

What I will tell you is that it was found in a wash and I found no other nuggets in that wash in either direction. I do need to spend more time looking there.

I have not calculated the amount of gold/quartz in it yet and I will leave that to some speculation for now. It has been tested and the gold is connected throughout.

It is easily the largest nugget and amount of gold I have found in one piece.

Thank all of you who have helped me use my 5000 better. It had been a long time between gold finds but this is the third 'piece' in the last 2 weeks!

Mitchel

I agree with Grandpa John. The Goose that laid the golden egg surely has fingerprints all over this one!!!

Super nice find, thanks for sharing. nothing better than white quartz, now if you could find some more of that yellow stuff I'm sure you would have some more nice quartz pieces. :ROFL:

Very nice Mitchel, now all you have to do is find the nest of the goose that laid that Golden Egg, I would think she has to be sitting on some more of those eggs!!
