could be a stunt kev, they wont say which machine they found it with although if it was at 12 inches most would scream over it anyway, and to get $400k US seems a lot of money for 75oz at 80 odd percent gold, must be the rarity of the find giving it the value.

A buzz of excitement swept through the historic gold mining state of California, US, at the end of October, when a recently discovered 75 oz gold nugget was put on show and sold for about $400 000.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the rare clump of gold, which has been christened the Butte Nugget, having been found in a rugged area of Butte County, in northern California, was discovered in July but details relating to the lucky metal-detector-bearing prospector and the exact location of the discovery are being kept secret to prevent scammers and treasure seekers from taking advantage.
