Best Answer

Gold and gold mines were extremely important discoveries in the New World's age of exploration. Add to that silver and silver mines. Rare gems such as rubies and emeralds were also found in the New World. Also, uninhabited lands that could be used for crop growing cannot be ignored as important as well.
