When I first saw the heading I thought that you found a nugget that was in the shape of an eagle. Very Happy  I'm sure though it would be nice to find one even half that size. Laughing

You know what Wayne, thanks for the idea. I am going to get something made up to preserve the memory.

Imagine that, 32 kgs !!    I'm always carrying 20 kg bags of fertilizer, and they are fairly heavy themselves.

The way they are holding it , you can tell it's pretty heavy.

This is the actual photo, so it needs preserving for sure, cheers Pete.

T06 Good move I would say Pete, If I was you I would get it digitised and a few new prints and find a nice frame/wallet thingy to preserve the original, pics like that only come along once every few lifetimes, do you know if that picture is out in the public domain?, I would be up for a copy if your ever willing to share them round Wink.

Wayne. cheers

Hi Dave, since i've dug it out, i realise how important this photo really is.

I can't find another one that is as clear.

I now intend getting it professionally copied and then loaned to the WA museum. cheers Pete.
