I bought a beautiful crystalline gold nugget recently from Mammoth and it showed up 2 days later. It’s a rare and very cool looking piece that I know will only grow in value. I love the fact that it came from Canadian Yukon soil and was mined from a hardworking, family run, small scale operation. I 100% recommend this company if you’re looking to invest in Canadian gold!

I caught the fever a little while back and had been testing out some of the other paydirt companies but Mammoth takes the cake! Ordered 1 each of the gram bags and each had no less than 2g per. Also went for the 1tOZ bag and recovered 33.3g! Immediately went back for more and will again I’m sure. Thank you!

Mammoth is a great new paydirt provider. Their product is #1

Customer service #1

Mammoth is my number 1 go-to paydirt company. They stand behind the product 100%. If problems arise they are quick to fix it.

The R.O.I. provides an excellent return.

The gold is phenomenal, nuggets, flakes, wire gold, and of course small amounts of fly poop to round it out. Once you have tried Mammoth you will agree.

I have purchased many bags of Mammoth and have not had an R.O.I. under 100%

So glad I found these guys. I used a different company for years and they went out of business. Ive tried a handful of others and was always disappointed. So glad to find a new company that delivers excellent quality. I won’t buy from anywhere else. There nuggets are beautiful and there paydirt is excellent. Got more than was guaranteed. Couldn’t be happier. Placing another order now. Quick shipping to Utah also. Thanks guys, keep up the good work.

As I write this I am burning one of my candles. This one is not a lucky one but I enjoy having a candle that I can burn that does not make me have an allergic reaction and it can be a lucky one too. Great fun! They are a great company to order from and very fast. I urge everyone to check it out! Can’t wait to check my second candle out! lol

Product Description

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW – GOLD NUGGETS:  

What is a Raw, Natural Canadian Gold Nugget?  

A natural, raw Canadian gold nugget is a small, irregularly shaped piece of native gold found in its natural state. These nuggets are formed through the erosion of gold-bearing quartz veins and are known for their distinctive bright yellow color and metallic luster. The nugget’s surface may exhibit a textured and rough appearance, reflecting the geological processes that shaped it over time.   

Where are they found?  

Typically, gold nuggets are found where the erosion in the Earth. We know these places as streams, rivers, underground riverbeds and dried-up channels.  

How pure are they?  

Gold nuggets found in Yukon, Canada, vary in purity, often containing a mix of gold and other minerals like copper or silver. The purity can be measured in karats, with 24 karats being pure gold. Gold nuggets from the Yukon typically range in purity between 70-95%. For accurate information on a specific nugget, consulting with experts using a XRF analyzer is recommended as there is no such thing as a 100% pure gold nugget.  

What sizes are available?  

Gold nuggets in the Yukon come in a range of sizes, spanning from microscopic particles that may be invisible to the naked eye, to flakes measuring a few millimeters in diameter, and larger nuggets that can be several centimeters or more. The diversity in sizes, influenced by geological factors, adds to the allure of gold prospecting in the Yukon, where individuals and mining operations search for gold in various forms and dimensions.  

How are Natural Gold Nuggets found in the Yukon?  

Gold nuggets in the Yukon are typically found through placer mining, where gold eroded from veins in rock formations is transported by natural forces like rivers. Prospectors use tools like gold pans and sluice boxes to sift through sediments and extract gold from placer deposits. Larger-scale operations may use machinery like excavators and wash plants. Modern techniques, including metal detectors, are also employed. The process involves a combination of traditional prospecting methods and technology to uncover gold in various forms and sizes.  

How are Gold Nuggets weighed?  

Gold nuggets are weighed using precise digital scales, typically measured in troy ounces (12 ounces = 1 pound) which is slightly different than the typical measurement of 16 ounces = 1 pound. These nuggets can also be measured in grams. Troy ounces, slightly heavier than regular ounces, are the standard unit for gold. The purity of the gold is also considered, measured in karats. Careful placement on the scale is necessary due to the irregular shapes of the nuggets. Larger mining operations may use specialized equipment for weighing larger quantities of gold.  

Why are some nuggets really bright and others seem dull?  

The appearance of gold nuggets varies due to factors like surface oxidation and the presence of other minerals. Some nuggets may appear bright due to their pure composition and minimal oxidation, while others appear dull because of surface reactions with elements in the environment. Geological conditions and the nuggets’ history of exposure influence their luster.  

Why do we use the terms “raw” and “natural” to describe our nuggets?  

Gold nuggets are termed “raw and natural” because they are in their natural state, directly extracted from the Earth without undergoing significant human processing. These gold nuggets form through geological processes, often found in riverbeds or sedimentary deposits. However, it’s crucial to note that some gold nuggets can be man-made, created through processes like gold casting or shaping. The distinction between natural and man-made gold nuggets lies in their origin, with natural nuggets occurring organically in the earth, while man-made ones result from human activities such as refining or molding gold.
