by finding gold
People rushed West during the Gold Rush because they all wanted to make a profit from the gold. Some of the people who traveled west were miners and merchants; the miners came to search for gold and the merchants came to make a profit from the miners. Many people left their homes and families, in order to make a fortune from the Gold Rush.
Because the miners 'rushed' to get the gold. rush is to hurry or make haste.
Life was rough in mining towns. Few women or families came with the miners. The women that did end up in the gold towns generally were prostitues or did miners laundry. There is a reason why the gold rush towns had names like Hangtown.
Gold was discovered in California in 1848. The result was an influx of miners hoping to make a fortune by mining gold.

the goals of the miners in late 1800 was to make their masters richer by mining up gold and other rare and valuable minerals therefore starting the gold rush
