If we’ve learned one thing lately, it’s that we definitely need to get into metal-detecting. An unidentified prospecter was metal detecting an area in Australia known for gold mining, when he picked up a signal. Under 23 inches of dirt, he found something incredible: a gold nugget! At first, the prospector said, he thought he had found an ounce of gold. But as he kept digging, and kept cleaning off the dirt, the nugget turned out to be 12-pounds! It’s valued at around $300,000 dollars…what a find! Get a closer look at it below.
