Comment The California Gold rush began in early 1848 when John Sutter's foreman discovered some shiny metal near a mill that Sutter was constructing on the America River.

The two men quietly had the metal tested and it turned out to be gold.

Because surface gold is usually found in river gravel beds and streams, it flows downstream from higher positions in the mountains.

The gold found near Sutter's Mill flowed down from the mountains that fed the American River. Also, other rivers were discovered to have pan-able Arizona gold nuggets for sale as well.
