Wow nugget!!

Just going through some old pictures, cleaning up my office and I want to share this old pic. This was taken on an Atlin claim by my uncle in 1981. Not sure how big it really is. This is my first post, hope it works...Gold 001a Atlin 08-81.jpg

Hi.Jack.Welcome to the site.Looking at the size of the hands holding it and the fact that I have 5 ounze moulds I am going to guess that beauty weighed in between 25-30 ounces.Pics can be deceiving. Luck ,Mcbain.
I started out with nothing Istill have most of it.

Wow is the word.  I have been to Atlin many times and my "nuggets" have been less than 2 g.  in size.  Dang.
