Aussie Gold Metal Detecting Australia Gold Nuggets

Huge gold nuggets found metal detecting. A deadly snake falls into the hole where the Victoria Diggers are prospecting for gold, setting off a panicked attempt of relocating the snake whilst trying not to get bitten.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

On 1 July 1851 Victoria became a separate colony and, on the same day, James Esmond in company with Pugh, Burns and Kelly, found alluvial gold in payable quantities near Donald Cameron’s station on Creswick’s Creek, a tributary of the Loddon, at Clunes, 34 km (22m) north of Ballarat. Esmond and his party found the gold after Esmond had been told by George Hermann Bruhn of the gold that had been found in March 1850 on Cameron’s property at Clunes and that in the vicinity were quartz reefs which were likely to bear gold.[60] Esmond rode into Geelong with a sample of their discovery on 5 July. News of the discovery was published first in the Geelong Advertiser on 7 July and then in Melbourne on 8 July. (more…)
