The first gold mines appeared in the 1830s. Already at that time, gold has a very high value and everyone wants to find some. This phenomenon is called the gold rush. The gold miners are also called diggers and they put the heart to work to dig, sift and find any hidden nugget in the soil.
In Gold Miner games, you have to look for gold, as if you went fishing. Launch your grapple at the right time to go up to a maximum of nuggets. Maybe you'll be rich soon!
