The Market Gold Price, may be at ~ $1300/ounce, but if you find a rare nugget, like this giant 18 ounce piece, you might get as much as 3,889/ounce ..that is if you keep it in one piece. As "GOLD IN THE RUFF" at this size, makes for an attractive Collectors Piece. :)
So where do you go to find a piece like this? ..A little birdie said Woods Creek Tuolumne County, California.The word is that the 18 ounces in question was found there on September 9th 2016.
