Funny you post that article.  It was a scam and the landowner was actually trying to sell/develop his land.  A guy in Australia later stepped up as said he found that nugget in Australia 

part of an article:


 On June 4, a Melbourne prospector named Murray Cox came forward after seeing a photo of the Washington nugget in a mining magazine, and claimed that it is actually the Orange Roughie nugget (for its fish-like shape), which he discovered in Australia and sold in 1989. He provided a Stockton TV station with a 1987 newspaper article from the Melbourne Herald Sun detailing the find. In side-by-side photographs of the two nuggets, they appear to be identical; they also match in weight.
(Of some further suspicion is the fact that after the original “discovery,” a website appeared seeking investors to help develop a commercial mining operation called the Lost Scotchman Mine on the 180-acre property. The nugget was prominently displayed, with the suggestion that it might be just the "tip of the iceberg." The property is landlocked, and federal court documents show that Grill has been involved in a long-running legal battle with the United States Forest Service to gain road access.)
At first, Reno auctioneer Fred Holabird – who handled the sale of the Washington nugget – stood by its authenticity. Now he says, “I got taken as bad as anyone,” although he expressed surprised that no one recognized it while it was on public display for three months prior to the auction. He’s still willing to pay for scientific testing that’ll definitively verify the nugget's origin but hopes to avoid the expense and effort by encouraging Grill to come clean.
How the buyer will take all this is unknown at the moment. Holabird said he has contacted the Irvine-based Spectrum Group International, a precious metals broker that represented the anonymous buyer, but he has not yet heard back from the company. Legal wrangles are almost certain to ensue.
