PROSPECTOR FINDS HUGE GOLD NUGGET - “Striking gold” is mainly a term to express when someone gets really lucky nowadays, but by golly, someone has actually done it. A 145-ounce gold nugget has been reportedly found in Victoria, Australia by a real life prospector and could be worth more than $190,710 when it goes to auction. The big ’ol nugget has been named “Friday’s Joy” on account of the day it was found. The anonymous prospector initially found a nine ounce tennis ball-shaped gold nugget two feet deep, returning the next day to see if there was more. “About 12 inches below the ground, I could just barely make out the top of something. As I began to scrape away the clay and dig deeper, I really couldn’t believe my eyes— this wasn’t an old piece of steel in front of me,” the prospector said in the statement. “I had just unearthed a colossal gold nugget— a once in a lifetime find! I was in total disbelief as I didn’t think nuggets of this size were still around.” The gold nugget is apparently now safely stowed away in a bank vault, but the prospector did hide it in their oven the first night after it was discovered.
