A gold nugget is a natural piece of gold that can be detected by Gold Nuggets Detectors. Waterways often concentrate gold nuggets and fine gold in placers. Gold nuggets are recovered by placer mining, but they are also found in residual deposits where weathering takes place in gold-bearing veins or nodes. Nuggets have also been found in the tailings piles of previous mining operations, especially those left by gold mining dredges. Gold Nuggets Detectors detect these gold nuggets and the possibility of detecting them varies from one device to another depending on the characteristics of each device and also the place you are excavating.
