The Holterman Plate


From Australia to Alaska, from Brazil to the deposits of Papua New Guinea, and simply in all corners of our planet, if there is one thing that excites the mind of the gold miner and makes his imagination play out pictures of immense wealth and luxury, it is the dream of large gold nuggets.

Interesting fact: In 1872, Bernhard Otto Holterman discovered the largest nugget in the world in Australia. The find was 144 cm long and 66 cm wide. It weighed 285 kilograms, of which about 83.2 kilograms was pure gold!

Unfortunately, the so-called Holterman Plate, has not survived to this day because it was almost immediately melted down.
