The Oregon Trail was laid by fur trappers and traders from about 1811 to 1840 and was only passable on foot or by horseback. By 1836, when the first migrant wagon train was organized in Independence, Missouri, a wagon trail had been cleared to Fort Hall, Idaho. Wagon trails were cleared further and further west, eventually reaching all the way to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. What came to be called the Oregon Trail was complete, even as improved roads, "cutouts", ferries and bridges made the trip faster and safer almost every year. On May 1, 1839, a group of eighteen men from Peoria, Illinois, set out with the intention of colonizing the Oregon country on behalf of the United States of America . In what was dubbed "The Great Migration of 1843" or the "Wagon Train of 1843",[20][21] an estimated 700 to 1,000 emigrants left for Oregon. From the early to mid-1830s (and particularly through the epoch years; 1846--1869) the Oregon Trail and its many offshoots were used by about 400,000 settlers, ranchers, farmers, miners, and businessmen and their families.

⚒ Canada's Largest Gold Mine: The Canadian Malartic Mine HD 2017
Sean Roosen from Osisko Mining (now Osisko Gold Royalties) was the only one brave enough to buy the historic Canadian Malartic Mine in October 2004 from a liquidation trustee following McWatters Mining’s bankruptcy. A year earlier, Barrick sold it to McWatters, without having done any work on the proerty since taking it over from Lac Minerals in 1994. Roosen gambled that no one would bid on what was perceived as a fully exploited brownfield play with potential liabilities. And he won the gamble of his lifetime, only paying $80,000 for the acquisition. At that time, Osisko was a junior exploration company with only 3 full-time employees and had a market capitalization of less than $5 million trading at 20 cents. Only 7 years following the acquisition and after 750,000 m of drilling, the filing of a positive feasibility study in December 2008, governmental approval in August 2009 and successful financing of the $1 billion project, the construction and start-up of the Canadian Malartic open-pit gold mine has been completed....

Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California.[1] The news of gold brought some 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad.[2] The sudden influx of immigration and gold into the money supply reinvigorated the American economy, and California became one of the few American states to go directly to statehood, in the Compromise of 1850. The Gold Rush initiated the California Genocide, with 100,000 Native Californians dying between 1848 and 1868. By the time it ended, California had gone from a thinly populated ex-Mexican territory to the home state of the first nominee for the Republican Party. The effects of the Gold Rush were substantial. Whole indigenous societies were attacked and pushed off their lands by the gold-seekers, called "forty-niners" (referring to 1849). The first to hear confirmed information of the gold rush were the people in Oregon, the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), and Latin America, and they were the first to start flocking to the state in late 1848. Of the 300,000 people who came to America during the Gold Rush, approximately half arrived by sea and half came overland on the California Trail and the Gila River trail; forty-niners often faced substantial hardships on the trip. While most of the newly arrived were Americans, the Gold Rush attracted tens of thousands from Latin America, Europe, Australia, and China. Agriculture and ranching expanded throughout the state to meet the needs of the settlers. San Francisco grew from a small settlement of about 200 residents in 1846 to a boomtown of about 36,000 by 1852. Roads, churches, schools and other towns were built throughout California. In 1849 a state constitution was written. The new constitution was adopted by referendum vote, and the future state's interim first governor and legislature were chosen. In September, 1850, California became a state. At the beginning of the Gold Rush, there was no law regarding property rights in the goldfields and a system of "staking claims" was developed. Prospectors retrieved the gold from streams and riverbeds using simple techniques, such as panning. Although the mining caused environmental harm, more sophisticated methods of gold recovery were developed and later adopted around the world. New methods of transportation developed as steamships came into regular service. ------------------------------------------------------------ Hashtags: #History #California #GoldRush #1849 #49ers #fortyniners

HD OREGON TRAIL APPLEGATE TRAIL GOLD RUSH ASHLAND MEDFORD JACKSONVILEE GOLD HILL GREAT MIGRATION, GOLD RUSH, HISTORICAL SOCIETY, TALENT, SOUTHERN OREGON, JACKSON COUNTY, EMIGRANT LAKE, PETER BRITT, YREKA, CALIFORNIA. Bear Creek is the name of a stream located entirely within Jackson County, Oregon. The Applegate Trail was a wilderness trail through today's U.S. states of Idaho, Nevada, California, and Oregon, and was originally intended as a less dangerous route to the Oregon Territory. In 1843, part of the Applegate family of Missouri headed west along the Oregon Trail to the Oregon Country.[1] Charles, Jesse, and Lindsay led their families along the trail and lost two children on the journey down the Columbia River.[1] The hardships along the way influenced the family to find an easier and safer way to the Willamette Valley.[1] Lindsay Applegate and fourteen other settlers established the South Emigrant Trail between Fort Hall in Idaho and the Willamette Valley via northern Nevada through southern Oregon where Ashland and Roseburg now lie. The intents of this route were to be safer than the Columbia River, encourage settlers to western Oregon, avoid the Hudson's Bay Company controlled area, provide a longer travel season, and steer clear of the disputed English territory north of the Columbia,[4] which most settlers expected would become the US-British Columbia border.[5]

4/15/2015 -- Gold Rush! Bundy Ranch v2.0 Reloaded -- Oregon Mining town BLM takeover
Check oldmarine1 for updates on this , he's staying on top of breaking news regarding this: https://www.youtube.com/user/theoldmarine1 ____ We all remember the BLM / Bundy Ranch standoff which occurred in 2014. Most people don't know, the Nevada land grab was NOT about "cattle". It was about Gold Butte,Nevada. Gold Butte is an old dormant butte volcano, and an old GOLD MINING TOWN which was shut down by the government between 1905 -1908. During World War 1 a large majority of the copper and silver used in the war came from around this location in Clark County Nevada. Ironically, 100 years ago is the time where Bundy claims his family began ranching the area. It is odd that the families that stayed behind AFTER the government shut down the post office (on purpose shut down to cut off supply to the town).... turned out to be ranchers --- and that was 100 years ago. Bundy, an old man now in 2015 must have been passed down a "family secret" about the Gold deposits, silver deposits, and other precious metals in the ground at Gold Butte, NV. The whole BLM land grab in 2014 was about Gold. Which is why Harry Reid wanted to strip mine the area and build a "solar farm" on Gold Butte after they level the mountainside and get the contents of the stripped surface and subsurface. ______ Gold Butte is located about 33 miles southeast of Glendale. Mica was first discovered here in 1873, and then gold in 1905. By the next year, a post office was built. A gold rush in 1908 brought in more people, and the townsite now had a hotel, livery stable, post office, mercantile, and several residences. Another camp named Copper City was started two miles west at the site of the short-lived Lincoln copper mine. By 1910 the gold rush was over and most mining operations ceased. No buildings remain, only a couple concrete slabs / foundations, two graves, and several old mine shafts. Mining is thought to have begun in the 1700’s when the Spanish left remnants of their efforts in the form of arrastras. An arrastra is a large flat rock hollowed out over which a donkey would drag another rock to crush the ore. There are four known arrastras in the Gold Butte townsite area. In the 1800’s mica was being mined and shipped from the area. Gold was discovered in 1906 and by 1907 Gold Butte was booming with a speculated population of 2,000. By 1909 the boom went bust and the post office was removed from the townsite of Gold Butte. Mining continued in the area as the Grand Gulch copper mine produced much of the needed copper for World War 1. The wagon trails that carried the copper to the St. Thomas railroad spur can still be followed to this day. The wagon masters’ signatures in wagon wheel axel grease tell the story on the sandstone walls of Mud Wash. ______ Now move forward to 2015, and we have Galice Oregon, and a repeat situation of the BLM coming in to a Gold mining town to seize land for their own use. Again we have locals who mine the land , who have a miners claim (by law) on land that is public use. Just like Nevada , Bundy, and Gold Butte, in Oregon we have Gold HILL nearby. A butte and a hill could be considered very much similar. Nearby volcanoes at each location tell the tale of the rich mineral deposits which must exist at both locations in NV, and OR. ______ http://www.friendsofgoldbutte.org/about/historical-resources/ https://www.google.com/search?q=gold+butte+nevada https://www.google.com/search?q=gold+butte+nevada+WWI+copper http://silverstateghosttowns.com/goldbutte.html http://kensphotogallery.blogspot.com/2015/01/daytrip-gold-butte-town-site-gold-butte.html

Exploring Buncom Oregon Ghost Town
Buncom was first settled by Chinese miners in 1851 when gold was discovered in nearby Sterling Creek and Jacksonville. Minerals such as cinnabar, chromite, and silver were also mined. A general store was built, and in 1861 J. T. Williams opened a saloon. The Buncom Mining District was created in 1867. Buncom post office was established in 1896. By 1918, the gold in the area was depleted, the post office was closed, and the town was abandoned. Most of the buildings were later burned down. Only three buildings from the early 1900s remain: the post office (built in 1910), the cookhouse, and the bunkhouse. In 1991, the Buncom Historical Society was created. The society replaced all three of the roofs of the buildings in Buncom. The society has also restored the porch of the post office and the eaves of the cookhouse.

Cave Junction, Oregon
Cave Junction, Oregon, by Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki?curid=130825 / CC BY SA 3.0 Cave Junction, Oregon Cave Junction, incorporated in 1948, is a city in Josephine County, Oregon, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 1,883. Its motto is the "Gateway to the Oregon Caves", and the city got its name by virtue of its location at the junction of Redwood Highway (U.S. Route 199) and Caves Highway (Oregon Route 46). Cave Junction is located in the Illinois Valley, where, starting in the 1850s, the non-native economy depended on gold mining. After World War II, timber became the main source of income for residents. As timber income has since declined, Cave Junction is attempting to compensate with tourism and as a haven for retirees. Tourists visit the Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve, which includes the Oregon Caves Chateau, as well as the Out'n'About treehouse resort and the Great Cats World Park zoo. For thousands of years, the Takelma Indians inhabited the Illinois Valley. Their culture was destroyed when gold was discovered in the early 1850s, causing the subsequent Rogue River Wars. After an 1853 treaty, most of the Takelmas lived on the Table Rock Reservation. In 1856, after the wars ended, they were moved to the Grand Ronde Reservation and the Siletz Reservation. The first gold in Oregon history was found in the Illinois Valley, as well as the largest gold nugget (). In 1904, more than 50 years after prospectors had started combing the valley for gold, an 18-year-old named Ray Briggs discovered what newspapers at the time called "the most wonderful gold discovery ever reported in Oregon history." While hunting along Sucker Creek, he discovered gold lying on the ground. He staked a claim and called it the "Wounded Buck Mine," which produced of gold. The "mine" was a small vein of gold wide, long and deep. As gold mining in the Illinois Valley became exhausted in the 1860s and 1870s, the residents diversified into ...
Oregon History 101 - "How the Donation Land Act Created the State of Oregon & Influenced History"
“How the Donation Land Act Created the State of Oregon and Influenced its History.” Presented by David Johnson, Professor of History, Portland State University Recorded at McMenamins Kennedy School, Portland, Oregon Monday, November 3, 2014 The Oregon Donation Land Law, passed by Congress in 1850, divided land into square plots that are still visible on the western Oregon landscape. The law allowed for white males and married women to claim 320 acres of free land, which helped spur the westward resettlement of European Americans to the Oregon territory and had lasting impact on the economic, political, and cultural development of the state. Professor Johnson will discuss how the Donation Land Act of 1850 initiated a land rush to Oregon, hastened the European American conquest of the territory, and—by virtue of the sheer size of the Donation Land claimant population—influenced almost every aspect of the region’s subsequent transformation into a U.S. territory and state. David A. Johnson is a professor of history at Portland State University. His field of expertise is United States social and intellectual history. Johnson is the managing editor of the Pacific Historical Review.
