    2 1/2 ounce MONSTER GOLD NUGGET !!

    Was out relic hunting with my buddy Mark (49r Relics) and got a nice 39/40 on the CTX. From past experienced I knew it has a chance of being a gold nugget!! Got is all on video!!

    What an amazing feeling popping out a huge chunk of gold like this. I know many of you are not gold hunters (at least not in nugget form) but gold this size is the Holy Grail of nugget hunting!! Amazing to see this surface for the first time and be the first person to ever touch it!! The Nugget Gods have been nice to Mark and me!!

    What an awesome find, I enjoyed the video too.
    Thanks for sharing and making me want to get out and kill bedrock even more, BUT THIS WASNT ON BEDROCK!
    Super awesome score.

    What else was found at that area?

    Wow, incredible nugget! Without a doubt that's a Banner find! My vote is in.

    What do smaller gold nuggets read on your CTX? What program were you using?
