The 5 Largest Gold Nuggets that Still Exist
Throughout gold rush and gold mining history, the discovery of a large gold nugget is a phenomenon which always causes excitement throughout a mining community as well as capturing the wider public's imagination. It has probably something to do with so much gold being found at the same time, often with relative ease. Gold nuggets can be found in alluvial deposits (sediments formed by water movement) or in other placer deposits (formed by other movement), but gold nuggets can also be found in or

  Gold and Silver as Standards of Value 
All the usurpation, and tyranny, and extortion, and robbery, and fraud, that are involved in the monopoly of money are practised, and attempted to be justified, under the pretence of maintaining the standard of value. This pretence is intrinsically a false one throughout. And the whole motive for it is to afford some color of justification for such a monopoly of money as will enable the few holders of gold and silver coins (or of such other money as may be specially licensed and substituted for them) to extort, in exchange for them, more of other men’s property than the coins (or their substitutes) are naturally and truly worth. That such is the fact, it is the purpose of this article to prove.

Scientists Discover Gold Grows On Trees 
ALL ABOUT GOLD Money doesnâ??t grow on trees, but according to scientists from CSIRO, gold most certainly does! Theyâ??ve discovered tiny â??nuggetsâ?? in the leaves and branches of eucalyptus trees growing in the Kalgoorlie region of Western Australia. CSIRO geochemist Dr Mel Lintern said the trees act as hydraulic pumps, drawing up water containing gold from tens of metres beneath the surface. â??As the gold is likely to be toxic to the plant, itâ??s moved to the leaves and branches where i

Where does the term ‘Dollar’ originate 
The origin of the Dollar can be traced back to Joachimsthal or ‘Saint Joachim’s Valley’ in Bohemia, where silver was discovered in 1519. The local ruler, Count of Schlick, coined the metal into large coins nicknamed Joachims thalers. The coin became the basic currency of the district and neighbouring areas also adopted and imitated theJoachimsthaler – which was abbreviated to the shorter and neaterThaler.

Harsh, arid and lonely. The Western Australian outback is an inhospitable place. Despite the difficult conditions, however, men have pursued their dream of finding gold in this challenging region for well over a century. At Coolgardie in the 1890s, their hopes were well founded, for nearby lay what would become famed as the richest square mile on Earth. Paddy Hannan, a 50 year old prospector originally from Ireland, walked the 600 kilometres from Perth to try his luck. Together with Thomas Flana
