Best Answer

When the California gold rush began in 1848, James Knox Polk was the President of the United States, but it continued during the Presidencies of Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, and tapered off by the time Franklin Pierce was President, in 1855.

There have been several gold rushes in the United States:

Carolina Gold Rush (1799, George Washington, John Adams)

Georgia Gold Rush (1828, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson)

Pikes Peak Gold Rush (1859, James Buchanan)

Idaho Gold Rushes (1860-1863, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln)

Black Hills Gold Rush (1874-1878) (U.S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes)

Mount Baker Gold Rush (1897 to 1920s, William McKinley to Calvin Coolidge)

Fairbanks Gold Rush (1902-1905, Theodore Roosevelt)
