Abstract:

The discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848 changed the American west and the world. Thousands of dreamers descended upon California to stake claims, followed by rushes to Nevada, Alaska, Montana, and other territories with the uncovering of silver and copper deposits. Take a look at the technology developed to exploit the Earth's riches as mining went further underground and evolved from a one-man operation to a multibillion-dollar industry.
