Minelab’s regional sales and marketing director Fraser Kendall said the company was thrilled a customer made such a discovery.

Kendall added that the nugget was on par with the 159.3 ounce ‘Cindy’s Pride’, and surpassed prospector Mick Brown’s 87-ounce ‘Fair Dinkum’ gold nugget found last year near the Wedderburn, around 200km north of Melbourne; it was later auctioned for $175,000.

It would be interesting to test this nugget for possible historic value , many small time bush-rangers would melt down stolen jewelry and coins into a hole in the ground, then years later take out a mining claim. Most notable was the Junee reef nugget that contained a cut diamond.

My Grandfather was the mine engineer when they found the Holterman nugget. They put it in the cart and it broke the boards.

It's mind blowing to realize that all those gold atoms were made as the last gasp of life of a huge collapsing star billions of years ago, well before our present solar system came into being. In fact that dying star could have caused our sun and planets to form and so that nugget could be a link to our beginnings.

No doubt there will be a rush on metal detectors and weekend hotel rooms in central Victoria yet again

The discovery of the 4,121 grams nugget came the day after the prospector found a nine-ounce nugget, roughly the shape of a tennis ball, worth approximately 11,000 U.S. dollars.

How do they know where to find a treasure such as this one? It may have taken him 30-40 years to find it and I don't think it is worth the time lost.

Were are going to need that gold very soon. The economy is failing and we will be back to some kind of gold standard withing the next 10-20 years.
