    Prospectors find largest gold nugget in 120 years (Black Hills)

    From the article:
    "A mixture of quartz and gold, the nugget weighs 5.27 troy ounces, but a gravity test at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology determined its specific gold content was 3.96 troy ounces, Johnson said."

    Very cool article but I can't seem to find any updates that show the nugget. Looking at a picture of a cloth bag is kind of a letdown after reading the story.
