It may be a hole, but it's mine...


Gold man told: you're in a hole, stop digging
Last updated: 15-Jun-06 00:09 BST

A CALIFORNIAN digging for gold in his front garden got "carried away" and ended up with a 60ft hole. Henry Mora, 63, began digging after his gold detector reported a hit. He only intended to go down three or four feet, but the detector kept hinting he was getting closer.

Authorities fenced off the house and ordered him to hire an engineer to safely fill the hole.

Don't think they'd be much good for me either - I've got a gold filling which would probably set the damn thing off all the time.
