Golden nuggets

Within PNG, small nuggets are still found and are relatively easily identifiable as coming from a particular area such as Mount Kare, Simbai or Amanab.

Apart from their shape, nuggets will vary in color, depending on their content of silver. Thus nuggets from Mount Kare tend to be paler than those form Simbai which have a lower silver content.

Nuggets which have been deposited close to the surface often have a darker yellow color because over the years the silver has been progressively leached out by the humic acids produced by rotting vegetation.

Every panful has gold potential.
