An amateur gold hunter in Australia saw his patience pay off in a big way when he unearthed a massive nugget worth a staggering $160,000. The unnamed prospector reportedly made the remarkable discovery while searching for riches in a region of the state of Victoria famously known as the 'golden triangle.' As he combed through the area with a fairly inexpensive metal detector, he stumbled upon a sizeable rock, which he subsequently brought to gold dealer Darren Kamp in the hopes that it could worth something. Not only did his suspicions turn out to be correct, but the value of the nugget wound up wildly exceeding his expectations.
