Specialists of RNC Minerals also reported that in one week the miners managed to extract gold amounting to $11 million in the gold deposit near Kalgoorlie.

Sam Spearing, the head of the mining school in the Australian city of Bentley, considers the discovery very valuable:

"People still find gold nuggets in the goldfields, though very seldom lately. Typically, the weight of findings does not exceed a few ounces. Therefore, the recent discovery is indeed a phenomenal luck. " According to the scientist, Australian miners find 2 kilos of gold per ton of rock on average.
