In the city of Ballarat (Australia) the local farmer went with the metal detector on one of waste grounds which was near his house. As soon as the device has given a signal, the man has begun to dig. Literally at once he has come across small pieces of gold. The man has continued to dig and soon at a depth about 60 cm has found a huge gold nugget weighing 5,5 kg and worth $315 000.

In 2009 the builder by the name of Bob Kitts did repair for the school girlfriend Amanda Reece of Cleveland (USA). When he got rid of an old tile in a bathroom, in a wall has found 2 iron first-aid kits in which there were tens of envelopes with money. Envelopes have been addressed to the news agency P.Dunne and contained $182 000.
School friends were delighted to a find, but couldn't divide money. Amanda has offered Bob 10%, but that wanted 40. Then they have decided to understand court, and the P.Dunne agency was connected to process and too has wanted a share. As a result the court has divided money equally between all participants.
In 1992 the English farmer Peter Whatling has lost the hammer. To search the site, he has asked to help the friend, Eric Lawes who had a self-made metal detector.
The first several minutes Lawes has found a small silver coin. He began to dig in this place and has soon found an oak box in which there was a gold necklace, jewelry and hundreds more of same coins.
Archeologists have christened this find "a hoksnensky treasure", and its cost was $15 million. All artifacts have been transferred to the British museum. Eric has been rewarded by $2,3 million which he has shared with the friend. And here the Uotling Peter hammer hasn't found.
