A gold nugget weighing more than four kilograms has been found in Victoria. According to metal detecting manufacturer Minelab, the discovery was made in a worked-over area on the southern edge of central Victoria's Golden Triangle. It said the 145-ounce nugget, named Friday's Joy, could be worth up to $250,000. The lucky prospector, who has chosen to remain anonymous, said he found the nugget 12 inches below the ground. "I thought it was rubbish at first, maybe an old horseshoe," he said. "As I began to scrape away the clay and dig deeper, I really couldn't believe my eyes - this wasn't an old piece of steel in front of me.
Or the people who say it's going to fetch a quarter of a million dollars.
