How was the shovel used in the gold rush?

One of the main methods to look for gold was in the rivers for gold nuggets. The miners had a sluce box and rocker to find the gold. The sluce box was a wooden box with an box on top to shovel in dirt and to poor water over the dirt. The dirt/water would run down a tracer that emptied into the river. In the tracer the gold nuggets would fall to the bottom instead of washing out. The rocker had a similar idea but it rocked back and forth to separate the dirt with water. Again shovel fulls of dirt were put into the rocker to separate dirt from gold. The miners doing this would stand in dirt and water all day long with shovels of dirt and water for the few nuggets they could get.

Where did most settlers travel to find gold back in the day?


What did people need to mine gold in the 1850s?

That depends on the location. The gold miners in California in 1849-1855 were able to "pan" gold dust from the rivers, or use "placer" mining techniques to wash dirt from the hillsides and into "rockers" that would separate gold dust from lighter dirt in the water. Later miners used picks and shovels and actually dug through "hard rock" to get to the gold veins. In fact, even now (2015) there are still "gold panners" trying to sort gold dust out of the river mud on many California rivers. Some families go "gold mining" on weekends, sometimes bringing home $200 worth of gold dust in a day's work.

Did the gold miners hide gold?

Hypothesis: placer gold miners hid gold outside of mining camps. Some miners found enough placer gold that it would have been cumbersome to carry it around while working and their gold fever would have made them very uncomfortable leaving gold in their tents or cabins. I believe some gold miners would have dug holes near rocks or easy to remember trees high above mining camps such as Rich Bar or Nelson Creek in California. This was their bank. Some of these men died and never recovered their gold. It sits in the ground this day.
