A miner's licence is a licence when a miner has to get so he can dig.

If he was caught he has to spend a lot of time in jail. A miner's licence lasted 1 month, and the cost of it was 30 shillings but then it turned into 1 pound.

What different ways did the miners show rebellion against gold license fee?

Many miners tried to avoid paying the licence fees, because they were exorbitant, unreasonable and often beyond the means of hard-working diggers. The most obvious way this rebellion was expressed was in the Eureka Stockade, a battle between miners and the troopers. See the related question.

Why was there a Eureka Stoskade?

Eureka Stockade had arisen from high rising prices for mining equipment, the expense of a Miner's License, and taxation without representation on the license. The miners demands for right to vote and purchase land, as well as a decrease in license costs, was not granted, instead was met with [what was perceived as] injustice from the government. The event hit critical mass after a group of miners attacked a marching troop of reinforcements on 28 November 1854, in which many were injured and a drummer boy was said to have been killed.
