I need help once again pulling something up, and once again I am counting on a trusty Wiener to pull me through. I need information on the largest single gold strike, or even the largest gold nugget, ever taken during the California Gold Rush. I've tried every kind of search I can think of and am coming up empty. Apparently many Mother Lode locations in California boast "one of the richest finds" here and there, but I can't find anything concrete on one definite site being the largest ever.

My sincere appreciation to the first Wiener who can do something here.

Well, after a bit of shoveling around, I did find that the largest gold nugget dug up in the United States was found in Angels Camp, California, in 1854. See http://www.historichwy49.com/angel/calavhist.html or http://comspark.com/chronicles/calaveras.shtml. (The biggest gold nugget in the world was found in Australia.)
