It just says it will run through the 10th. I guess it doesn't specifically say it ends the 10th. Either way Chris is a pretty busy feller so I'm sure he will specify when he returns.

The Contest Is Over! Please No More Entries.

The winner is Jasong with 21 of 30 correct. Two others - Swegin and Gold Geo - both got 20 of 30.
Unfortunately, its winner takes all, no prize for second.

The two guys who got in way late did not have enough of a score to win, even if they had entered on time.

The nuggets came from 5 different continents (nothing from Europe or Antarctica). A couple of deposits from Brazil and Venezuela produce nuggets that have a chevron character that look a lot like Chevron gold from Northern Nevada. 

The correct answers are:
