36 Kg Quartz Specimen Found Containing aprox 14 kg’s of Gold - What a Find!

Post by golddiggerdave on Fri 30 Nov 2012, 2:50 pm

Hi All,

Here's a story I thought worth posting. Not from the WA fields but this find gives us all some hope!

A regular customer came into the Miner’s Den Sydney store and brought in an enormous 36 KILOGRAM specimen of quartz the other day. He’d found it with his Minelab GPX 5000 metal detector very close (within 25 feet) of his last major find.
He brought in the quartz because I’d asked him to show me the next chunk before he crushed it to extract any gold. We photographed the quartz and found that it did indeed have a strong metal content inside.
This specimen triggered a strong response from the Minelab GPX 5000 metal detector and even the store’s Minelab Pro-Find 25 Pin Pointer before crushing.

The ingot below is HALF of what came out of the specimen: 7,134 grams. The second ingot was almost the same weight.
The large slab of quartz and a smaller one combined to produce just over 14 kg’s of fine gold.

Worth in excess of $500,000.

This is the second such specimen brought in by the same prospector within four months.





Good Luck and Happy Prospecting

Gold Digger Dave

looks the same because i believe it is the same person....damn lucky guy, i believe he has put in the hard yards though so good luck to him....i also see he has perfected the technique of crushing and melting the gold a bit better this time...last time his ingots still had little bits of quartz showing! shows that NSW is still producing!
