Miners in Western Australia say they have discovered two huge gold-encrusted rocks that are each estimated to be worth millions of dollars.

The largest rock weighs 95kg. It was found to contain more than 2,400 ounces of gold! The mining company valued the largest rock at about NZ$4.7million. The second-largest rock weighed 63kg with an estimated 1,600 ounces of gold worth NZ$3 million.

Professor Sam Spearing, director of the Western Australia School of Mines, said “Very, very seldom do we see results on that level. This is an exceedingly rare find and very exciting. People do still record finding nuggets in the goldfields, but typically they are less than several ounces,”.

The largest rocks would go to auction as collector items.
