I guess it's just a rock...

It is very hard to imagine a large nugget like this being used in a game for several years, but I suppose most people don't know what raw placer gold looks like.  Amazing...

John,

Holy Cow! 10.7 Kg and the size of a loaf of bread is no small chunk of gold!!! Shocked

If their security and record keeping was THAT lax...................makes one think that IF an employee had discovered it all by their little ol' self........and nobody was the wiser.............that it COULD have simply been carted off and out the door!

I'd be happy with a nugget 1/2 that size.....or even smaller.... Wink
