Hi All
I thought I would share with you a few photo's of a bit I picked up late last year at "Western Creek" NQ, this bit was coated in Ironstone & only had a small sliver of "Gold" showing on one side, so recently I put it into some "Hydrochloric Acid" to get rid of the Ironstone & I was amazed at what it turned into, there is no wear to this nugget at all it is 100% crystal structure "Absolutely" the best I have seen.

If you are interested in owning such a piece send me a PM I may be talked into letting it go, but guaranteed it wont go cheap.

Well done there. That is one beautiful piece of gold. It would be a shame to sell something like that but that's what we prospect for.

Regards Axtyr.

Hi Burke It is a very nice piece and it would look good in anyones collection. But I have noticed no one has offered you a price as yet for this charming nugget, so I'll open up the bid and offer you $5.00 including postage Q41

Tip....
Go to a pub and flash it about....when fist approached with an offer of ?$...say no!..its not for sale. In his mind, everything has a price.....wait him out till he flops 1k on the table...when you accept, pick up the cash and leave. Laughing

As it happens, both are correct, But.......
Here in Australia or Britain, the term should actually be "Spelt".
"Spelled" is the American term,although the 2 have now mingled.
I don't mind as long as we don't start using American words like "Funnest" or "winningest", both i heard quite often in my time in the states. Shocked
