A gold rush is a period of feverish migration of workers into the area of a dramatic discovery of gold.

Mass migration of this sort occurred in the following locations:

  • In California, beginning in 1848 (the 49'ers)
  • In Australia in 1851
  • Again, in Western Australia around 1890
  • In the Klondike region of Alaska between 1896 and 1899

There were several methods for getting gold. Hydraulic mining was used to wash away whole hill sides. This destroyed the area where it was done and the damage can still be seen. Mines were dug into mountains and some are still working. For surface gold panning, the rocker, and sluice were used. There is still gold in CA and until recently it was too expensive to process gold so not many were looking for it.
