A gold prospector has found a gold nugget worth $4,000 buried two feet underground.
The prospector, known as Bill M, found the 50g nugget on a private property in the Ballarat area, south-west Victoria, last week. The exact location remains a secret.
He shared a photo of the nugget to Australian Facebook group Detecting Downunder.
'Gold prospector "Bill M" found this gorgeous 50 gram nugget on private property in the Ballarat area,' the post read.
