Gold comprises 90 percent of Ghana's Mineral export. The post originated from Ghana so who knows? I will check it out with my friend from Ghana.

Doesn't really look like gold. Also, how are two guys flopping a 1000+ lb rock so easily?
I did the math too it doesn't add up. I talked with my friend from Ghana he is going to check it out. He filled me in on their history. Originally called the gold coast while under colonial rule.

When you consider the largest nugget ever found in recorded history (1869) was 'only' 97 kg (214 lb)*, this 456kg (1,025 lb) claim is highly questionable.
This should be earth-shattering news....but I can't find a single reference anywhere on the internet news feeds.
Combine that with the questionable video, and the fact that this exact same post (and no details/follow-up) is on Findmall in 8 different sub-forums, and I smell a rat.

(The "Welcome Stranger" is the biggest alluvial gold nugget that has ever been found, which had a calculated refined weight of 97.14 kilograms (214.16 lbs). It measured 61 by 31 cm (24 by 12 in) and was discovered by prospectors John Deason and Richard Oates on 5 February 1869 at Moliagul, Victoria, Australia, about 14.6 kilometres (9 miles) north-west of Dunolly.)

*Note: There are differing reports on the actual size of the "Welcome Stranger" nugget. I listed the largest one.
