A Nevada City man struck gold with the help of his new metal detector, but it's not the kind of gold he expected to find.

Isaac Jones found half a human jaw bone with two golden teeth intact. He turned the remains over to the sheriff's department, but now he is trying to make sense of his discovery.

"I know this came to me in some form or fashion and it will resonate through my life," Jones, a novice prospector, said.

The metal detector was a Christmas present. Jones said he found the jaw bone near Edwards Crossing, a historic toll bridge that gold prospectors used to cross the Yuba River.

"It could be an old miner or a missing person," Jones said.
