Monster Gold Nugget Found in Western Australia

Prospectors in WA's Goldfields have dug up a big gold nugget weighing in at just over half a kilo from an area long abandoned to mining. (over a pound)

The nugget measuring 10 centimetres across and weighing in at 21 ounces - 670.3 grams - was discovered at Magnetic Resource's Mertondale tenement between Leonora and Laverton in the Goldfields. 

The tenement covers land on a pastoral lease that once held a gold mine early last century, and Magnetic has been exploring the remote Goldfields tenement looking for viable gold reserves to exploit.

The second largest nugget ever found in the world is the Normandy Nugget dug up by Newmont Mining in a dry creek bed near Kalgoorlie in the Goldfields in 1995.

That monster nugget, currently on display at the Perth Mint, weighs in at 25.5 kilograms - close to 900 ounces - dwarfing Magnetic's half kilo find.
