CALIFORNIA GOLD RUSH
January 24, 1848 - Sutter's Mill, Coloma, California
This initiated the California Gold Rush and during the next few years, thousands of people flocked to the area to search for gold. Some nuggets of gold in the native metallic form were simply lying on the ground. More were found by panning streambeds, and later, increasingly technological mining methods were employed. John A.

As recently as 2011, the discovery in northern California of a 100-ounce gold nugget was reported.
