The original story was called “Melon seeds or Goose eggs”. I put it up on the Bpc site. It has some different pictures. I guess the 500 ton sample taken would have cleaned most of them up.

This bit got me:
"Over the last few months, prospectors using metal detectors have uncovered more than 50 ounces of large gold nuggets within an area being prospected by mining company Magnetic Resources."

Followed by:

"We have acted quickly to ensure Magnetic benefits from any nuggets recovered by signing a tribute agreement with the local pastoralist (Matt Taylor)."

Tribute In Relation To Mining.
Is the proportion of the value of the ore raised, paid by miners to the owners or lessors of the land or their representatives.
The proportion of the value of the ore raised paid to the miners by the owners of the mine or land in payment of their labour.
Or in other words magnetics get a cut of the gold found by the metal detectorists.

Maybe this patch is going to take a bit more than scraping and detecting.
