Guessing that the price of gold is $1600.00 US an ounce times 177 ounces = $283,200.00 US

Did they just find it?

What's the story...I could google it but.... 0:)

Will has it tapped - eh? :)

Ballarat is a nice place to visit & live in. :) Sovereign Hill is there.

[promo]

Sovereign Hill is an outdoor museum presenting the story of Australia’s fabulous goldrush history. Its particular focus is the impact of the great 19th century gold discoveries on the growth of Ballarat, which was a small pastoral settlement when gold was discovered in 1851. By 1861, Ballarat had grown into a fine provincial city built on the wealth derived from its gold.
