The world's largest gold nugget was found in Australia on 5 February 1869. This was the " Welcome Stranger ", and it measured 61cm by 31cm. It was discovered by prospectors Jo…hn Deason and Richard Oates at Moliagul, which is about halfway between Maryborough and St Arnaud in western Victoria. Because no scales of the time could actually handle the weight of the nugget, it had to be broken into three pieces by a blacksmith in order to be weighed: it weighed in at over 2300 ounces, or 70 kilograms. Deason (Deeson) and Oates were paid £19,068 for their nugget which became known as "Welcome Stranger".
