English: A gold nugget is a naturally occurring piece of native gold. Watercourses often concentrate the nuggets and they are recovered by placer mining, but they may also be found in residual deposits where the gold-bearing veins or lodes have been weathered. Nuggets are also found in the tailings piles of previous mining operations, especially those left by gold mining dredges.
