Back in 1848 there claimed to be gold in America. People from all over the globe came to California to seek their fortunes. Sadly, most failed.
Yep! I am about to leave for California. I am feeling lucky!
Hey, have you heard about about the gold discovery in America? I hear it is called "The Great Gold Rush".
2 years later, In Buninyong, near Ballarat Victoria, another gold rush began. People from England, Ireland, Germany, Italy, America, China, as well as Australia, came searching for their hidden fortunes. Sailors fled their ships, shopkeepers left their shops, and servants escaped their masters.
Hey mate, do you know where to find the minning licence shop?
Thanks mate! Have you bought your minning tools yet?
Yes. You need a pan, shovel, and chisels.
Yeah it is the building in the middle. The licences cost 20 shillings.
