The History of the Gold Discoveries in the
Northern Mines of California's Mother Lode Gold Belt As Told By The
Newspapers and Miners 1848-1875
This book is the chronological history of the gold rush and gold discoveries
from 1848 through 1875, as viewed and reported by the newspapers and miners,
on what was called the Northern Mines area of California's Mother Lode Gold
Belt. The Northern Mines was that area north of the CosumnesRiver, which included Placerville on
northward. It included the region containing the South, Middle and North
forks of the American River, the Bear River, the South, Middle and North
forks of the Yuba River, and the South, Middle and North forks of the Feather
River, plus all the other branches and tributaries that ran into the named
forks and rivers.
This book contains as many newspaper articles that could be found relating to
the gold rush days. In using the newspaper articles from the golden era as
printed, with their dates, this reveals just when the "New
Diggings" as they were called, were found; where they were being made;
how rich some of the diggings were; what type of diggings they were; the
names of some of the prospectors who found some of the diggings or who were
at the diggings and what they were taking out. There are tales of how some of
the diggings were found and why some of them received the names they did. The
overall purpose of this book is to give a full picture of exactly what was
happening to as many different named diggings, locations, camps, and towns
that came up in the Northern Mines area, and to give an account of events
over at least a certain length of time, exactly as it was reported.
To determine from just where each newspaper article within this book comes
from, each of the newspaper articles used has first, the date on which it
appeared in the newspaper, followed in parentheses by the name of the newspaper
from which that particular article was obtained from.

Mining Camps of Placer County (CA) (Images of
Everything in Placer County history leads to gold, from its name the Spanish
term for gold-bearing gravel to the mining camps that sprouted overnight in
its rugged river canyons. Ecstatic cries of Gold on the AmericanRiver!
in 1848 launched the largest voluntary migration in the history of the world.
As claims panned out, thousands of miners swarmed like locusts between the
rough-and-tumble mining camps, from the crest of the Sierra Nevada to the SacramentoValley. Some camps disappeared along
with the easy placer gold; others found new methods to extract gold deposited
deep in quartz veins or underground and developed into stable towns that
still stand. Sometimes washing whole hillsides into rivers, hydraulic mining
was outlawed in the 1880s, but the colorful characters and tall tales of the
Gold Rush live on.
Placer Gold Deposits of the Sierra Nevada
> The history and geology of the Mother Lode Gold Country of California
were well documented in numerous government mineral resource surveys
throughout the century. This book compiles data from those reports, long
unavailable, in a concise, convenient edition that concentrates on gold
placer, hydraulic, and drift mines-giving location information as well as
history and past production figures. Covering the mines of the Mother Lode,
it also includes the other gold-producing counties of the southern and
northern Sierra Nevada range, and the dredging areas of the American,
Feather, and YubanRivers. More than
twenty county maps, this is the complete guide to prospecting the Gold
Country of California.
