Recently, three Victorian men unearthed two valuable gold nuggets in the town of Tarnagulla, west of Bendigo.
The two gold nuggets dug by Brent Shannon, Ethan West and Paul West, the father of Paul West, weighed 3.5 kilograms and are worth about 35 Australian dollars based on current gold prices. . If they sell the gold bullion to collectors, they can earn 30% more.
In an interview with Station 7, Brent said: "I know we have a chance to dig for gold." "It's a virgin land that has not been mined yet."
He said that they would use an excavator to dig up the soil, spread the excavated soil thinly, and then use a detector to detect it carefully.
"This way we can discover more gold. This is a better way and a safer way to mine."
Ethan said that in the past four years, he has unearthed "thousands" of gold nuggets, and the two are the largest so far.
He said: "This is definitely one of the most important discoveries. It is amazing to find two big gold nuggets in one day."
"I have picked up thousands of small gold nuggets. I am very lucky."
Paul said: "This is an indescribable feeling, unforgettable." "It is a sense of comfort and accomplishment."
"No one has discovered these two pieces of gold for millions of years. We are the first group to see them." "The feeling is unparalleled." "This is what we like to do."
Today, the new crown epidemic has caused the global economy to falter, and the price of gold as a safe-haven has continued to rise.
