Mr.T Australian finds 1.4kg gold nugget

Quote :

An Australian man has found a 1.4kg gold nugget using a metal detector while walking around a goldfield in Western Australia.
Cook told the BBC the man found the nugget on some saltbush flats, about 45cm below the surface.

I would want to loosen up the surface in all directions and run a potato harvester / stone picker through it ........... pull up to the surface anything bigger than 1" then hope it rains and exposes the shiny.
There simply has to be more that got squeezed up to the surface in the hot geology that created that lump.
