  • Hello, I'm Sam Smith and I live in Pittsburg California with my wife and kid.
  • My family is very poor so I am leaving to california to get some gold and become rich!
  • Usually we live in tents, but some rented rooms and hotels or small wooden buildings that were built for miners. I slept in a tent.
  • One of the methods we use to get our gold from the rivers fast and efficiently is the Long Tom. It can be used to process 400 - 500 buckets of dirt and gravel per day!
  • Here in California, we were earning $10 per day was actually about ten times as much as a coal miner on the east coast. Most gold miners, like me, were earning only enough to pay for food and supplies. and not enough to become rich.
  • WHile other people returned home or became apart of California, I became super wealthy! Most of the damage done by the gold miners was permanent and could not be undone but at least I found gold and was able to help my family
