Geocache Description:

A quick and easy find in the Whitehorse downtown area. This is a must see! If you are visiting our lovely city, make sure to check this one out. Enjoy your stay!

This immense slab of native copper weighs 2590 pounds or 1175 kilograms. In 1905, prospectors found the copper on the upper White River, 250 miles northwest of Whitehorse. This is the largest copper nugget, possibly a Canadian record.

This is a micro and may have space for a geocoin. Bring your pen/pencil and please sign the log. A Cuban peso is in this cache at time of placing.
