Placer Gold & Nuggets this the main reason for the big boom in the west. When the big gold discovery happened in 1848 at Sutter’s mill in Coloma history was made. Gold seekers by the thousands came from Australia, Europe, Latin America, Asia and other places around the world and moved to the great state of California in search of the precious yellow metal to strike it rich and stake their claim and hit the mother lode! In 1849 there were even more people rushing to California giving those people the nick name 49ers. Miners still to this day find large amounts of the rich metal right here and our local area, by panning, sniping, metal detecting and the use of a sluice box. Dredging is not legal at this time but looks like efforts are being made to reopen that technique.
