A miner has unearthed the largest gold nugget in history, which led him to secure 40 precious metal stones at a £ 10 million find.
Henry Dole made the great discovery at the Beta Hunt mine near Kambalda in western Australia.
First he found a nugget that weighed 14 stones, of which it was estimated that 10 were made of precious metal. It is worth approximately £ 2 million, it took three men to lift the piece.

It's better than the Welcome Stranger nugget of the country, which was previously considered the largest discovered with a weight of just under 12.3.
The Airleg driller, Mr. Dole, was found with a second nugget that weighed around 9.4 stones with an estimated value of £ 1.5 million before discovering even more, reports Daily Star.
The miner, who has more than 16 years of experience, said he has not seen "anything like this" in his entire career.
"While I was drilling it, you could see the gold chips that came out of all the holes and I thought:" There's something here, "he said.
"And then, after we shot it and I came the next day and washed it all, it was everywhere."
He unearthed the "incredible" journey while working about 500 meters underground for RNC Minerals.
It is estimated that the total travel (in the image, up and down parts of the total find) is worth £ 10millio

Armed guards will be deployed to transport the nuggets to a vault and security has increased in the mine.
