With the help of a metal detector, one of the Australians found a lump of gold weighing 1.4 kilograms. The discovery in Western Australia, occurred when it was in a gold mine.
This piece of precious stone was discovered after one of the shops in Kalgoorie shared its pictures online, the discovery of a lump of precious stone is estimated to be worth around US $ 69,000.
According to shop owner Matt Cook, the man who discovered the gold was a local hobbyist who had experience in finding gold with metal detectors. Experts say, the discovery of gold as big as it only happens a few times a year.

Around three quarter of the total gold mined in Australia is produced in and around the Kalgoorlie region. The cook who owns a supply sales shop for gold prospectors explained that the man whose name was not mentioned detected the gold chunks about 45 cm deep inside the ground. "He walked into my shop, and showed me a chunk in his hand, with a big smile on my face". Said Matt Cook told this incident (BBC / auth)
He also added, the chunks of precious stones found by a man in Western Australia, have a texture of extraordinary density, even larger than a cigarette box. "It's a little bigger than a pack of cigarettes, and the density is extraordinary, very heavy". Said Matt Cook
Another case with Professor Sam Spearing or the director of the Western Australia Mining School at Curtin University, according to him, the trace of gold in smaller quantities is found in the region. "With the surrounding mines, many people go around as prospectors on weekends, as hobbies. Others do it as daily work". He explained
Furthermore he also said, the chunks of gold found by men meant greater, because what was found before was only less than 0.5 ounces. "Most of the gold found is less than half an ounce, but they find it quite often". Explained Professor Sam Spearing.
If you are inspired by the discovery of 1.4 kilograms of gold, you can try it. But before that, you must have a metal detector equipment first, if there are already some 7 tips to find metal detector gold that you must apply:
After determining the location for hunting (Beaches, former mining, tourist attractions, small rivers, etc.) then do not use random methods or arbitrarily detect. Determine in advance how large the location to be detected.
2. Keep Distance
Do it while keeping the coil 1 cm above the ground then swing slowly. Swing the coil no more than 1 meter from side to side. After that move forward or not more than the swing coil distance.
3. Ignore wide voices
If we find 1 gold there is usually more than 1, so do it slowly and just ignore the change in sound that is so wide.
Keep in mind, every change in sound for short and sharp signals must be explored, because it could be iron metal or gold.
5. Activate Ground Balance
If the tool we have already has a ground balance feature, then activate ground balance every few minutes. And if you have determined the location to be excavated, first clean the surrounding garbage so that the penetration of the tool can be deeper into the ground and the received signal is stronger.
6. Don't waste the soil
Gently clean the designated location, because we can throw away the gold soil. To be sure the land to be disposed is brought to the detector. So that we can easily distinguish the sound produced by a detection device, it is better if the gold detection device is tested or tried with the gold you have then buried on the ground, this will make us familiar with the sound produced by the detection device.
7. Do from point to point
For larger areas or locations, do not ever detect from one point to another point quickly. But detect one drop slowly, because sometimes it takes more than 1 new detection we will find gold at that point.
So is the story of the discovery of 1.4 kilograms of gold, and tips on finding gold in metal detectorsif you have been inspired to get gold that is greater than 1.4 kilograms in your area, you can practice it directly, hopefully your golden hunting days are so exciting that you get it.
