Największy samorodek na świecie – „Welcome stranger”

Największy do tej pory znaleziony samorodek złota został odkryty 5 lutego 1869 roku w Moliagul, Victoria, Australia. Jego waga całkowita wynosiła 3,523.5 uncji trojańskich (109.59 kg), a waga netto (samego złota) to 2,315.5 uncji trojańskich (72.02 kg; 192 lbs 11.5 oz).

Odkrycia dokonali poszukiwacze John Deason i Richard Oates na zboczu nieopodal Bulldog Gully. Samorodek spoczywał jedynie 3 cm pod ziemią między konarami drzewa. Ponieważ na miejscu nie było odpowiednio dużej wagi, samorodek Welcome stranger został przecięty na trzy mniejsze części, zważony i sprzedany w London Chartered Bank of Australia za 9381 funtów szterlingów. Przy obecnej cenie złota wartość samego kruszcu wyniosłaby około 3 milionów USD, a w 2012 roku, przy szczytowej cenie złota, nawet 4,3 mln USD.

Samorodek został wkrótce przetopiony i w sztabkach przetransportowany do Melbourne, żeby następnie wyruszyć w podróż do Anglii na pokładzie parowca Reigate.

  83. Hi

    I have tried sending you a message from your site but I have gotten an auto response saying it was not delivered for some bizarre reason, so here goes again! Please acknowledge receipt.

    As I mentioned in my earlier message, I would like to contribute one of my guides on crypto-backed loans to your blog. I used to work for a payday loan company in the UK and so I have quite a good knowledge of the financial lending sector. I decided to write this guide because I feel that cryptocurrency will have a major impact on the payday loan industry in the next 5 to 10 years. I have tried to be as detailed as possible so you will find that the guide is fairly lengthy. Perhaps it would be a good idea for you to split it up into several blog posts or do as you see fit.

    I am terribly sorry but I did not have much time to find royalty free images. One company that I contacted whilst doing research and collecting references for this guide did give me permission to publish on of their banners that I have included in the g-drive folder.

    The entire guide is saved in a Word document inside my Google drive which you can access via this link


    I hope your readers will enjoy reading my guide.

    I would be most grateful if you could send me a link to the guide once you have published it!

    I will endeavour to write a couple more articles as and when I get some more free time: it is hell at work after the festive period.

    Have a fab day.
