One of the biggest gold nuggets ever found was in 1858 in the hills near Ballarat, in Central Victoria, Australia. The nugget was a monstrous 69-kilograms (152-pounds)! At today’s spot price for gold that would be a little over $3,300,000-US! Though finds like that are extremely rare, there is still gold to be found. One lucky prospector recently found a 63-ounce (4.32-pounds) in the area around Ballarat. Of course, he’s not saying exactly where.

His prices are way crazy cheap, so be sure to book your summer trip quick before he fills up!
I stumbled across another Alaska prospecting vacation adventure. It’s called Crow Creek Gold Mine. This one sounds awesome! They teach you how to do everything: pan, high-bank, sluice, dredge, and even metal detect. They’re just a few miles outside of Gridwood, AK which makes accommodations easy. Start planning your summer trip early this year! Give them a call.
