Rocky River Gold

Post by Philski » Sun Mar 15, 2015 5:48 pm

I found this photo of the 3 largest gold nuggets to come out of the Rocky River. The nuggets where copied and the replicas are apparently housed at the Museum in Launceston. Ive never seen them and this is the first image of them ive ever seen.

The largest one is 8 inch x 5 inch!

The holdfast Gold Mines NL went broke in spectacular fashion. They did recover some gold, but nothing like the above.
