NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)
14th December, 1906 : The Poseidon rush at Tarnagulla, near Bendigo, promises to prove the richest gold field opened in Victoria for many years. Two exceptionally large nuggets were discovered there today. About 3 p.m. T Stephenson and B Williamson picked up a lump of gold weighing 373 ounces. A few minutes later a shout from an adjoining claim announced the discovery of another large piece. With that, S Woodall, one of the party of four, staggered out of his hole with a lump of gold weighing about one cwt. It is over a foot in length and resembles the Welcome Stranger, though it is smaller.
