It should have been no surprise for gold to spring up out of the ground in a small town in central Victoria, Australia. The country was the epicentre of a legendary gold rush in the 1850s, prompting thousands to emigrate there to grab a nugget of gold to make their fortunes.
The gold rush ebbed in time, but acres of ‘virgin territory’ remain unexposed. The case for taking gold seriously came to the fore once again, when two men managed to revive something of a gold rush by finding two sizable nuggets of gold near the town of Tarnagulla. Weighing a combined total of 3.5kg, the two men have potentially discovered enough gold to make them A$350,000 if they decide to sell soon.
The gold rush of 2020 is here
The two nuggets discovered near Tarnagulla are no larger than the size of the average smartphone, and yet they still yield enough to make a sizable fortune. This just goes to show how small quantities of the yellow metal can make a large sum, if you choose to sell scrap gold today.
UK Scrap Gold keeps a close eye on live gold spot prices daily, allowing us to give a quick-time valuation for items of varying purities and sizes. For example, UK Scrap Gold can currently offer as much as £530 for an item of gold scrap weighing just one ounce, with a purity of 9-carat.
Imagine what an even larger item of gold with a higher purity could be worth, should you decide to sell, with prices hitting new all-time highs of £1,500 this summer. This year has offered investors and sellers once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, so it makes sense not to squander them while they still last.
If 2020 proves to be one of the greatest gold rushes in history, demand for the yellow metal will only increase, constraining supply and keeping prices higher for longer. Gold is one of the scarcest precious metals on the planet, so why not cash in on your scrap gold while prices are high?
