The Gold Rush, or the Gold Rush as it’s known in Canada, is one of the greatest sporting, cultural and economic phenomena of the 20th century.
It was the name of a series of six major railroads that connected Western Canada to the North Atlantic, including the Canadian Pacific Railway, which connected New York to the West Coast of the United States.
Since the early 1800s, Canada has been the dominant destination for travellers to Europe and the US.
In 1908, the United Nations General Assembly recognised the Gold Coast as a World Heritage Site and it became known as the Golden Triangle.
With the opening of the Canadian National Railway in 1896, travellers to the Golden Coast and the United Kingdom began to make the journey, which eventually brought thousands of Americans and Europeans from all over the world to Australia.
In the late 19th century, mining, logging and coal mining were the main industries that provided the bulk of the wealth for Australia’s population.
The Gold Coast had the world’s first gold mines and the first gold-bearing copper deposits.
In 1919, a British mining company, the Grafton Group, purchased a mining concession on the Gold Range, including two gold mines.
The concession was named Graftons Gold Mine.
In 1921, the concession was renamed Graftmans Gold Mine, and the Gannetts Company, a subsidiary of the Gains Corporation, acquired a concession for the Goldfields, located on the western coast of the Northern Territory.
A decade later, in 1929, the Gold Fields Mining Company (now known as Gannett) began work on a new mine on the same land.
The mine was named the Goldfield Gold Mine and the area was named Goldfields Gold.
The mining industry in Australia continued to flourish.
Between 1930 and 1940, the mining industry increased by 50 per cent, and in 1939, a mine owned by the Gampel Mining Company was opened at Graftmont, which was a large, deep deposit of gold and copper.
In 1945, the government passed the Gold Act which prohibited the use of land for the mining of gold.
In 1956, the Queensland Government passed a Land Acquisition Act which granted mining concessions to developers, including Gannets Gold Mine (now Gannetts Gold Mine), and the Gold River Gold Mine at Gannatts, which opened in 1957.
The Gannotts Gold Mines (now Goldfields) opened in 1960, and Graftont’s Gold Mine opened in 1969.
In 1976, the first mining concessions were granted to a new development company, Graftond Mines Limited (now Royal Gold).
The Graftonds Gold Mine was completed in 1983, and Goldfields was completed by the end of the year.
In 1984, a second concession was granted to Royal Gold.
In 1985, Gannott and Gannestra, which owned the Gold Hill gold mine, bought the Gold Valley Gold Mine from Royal Gold, which had been the concession holder for Goldfield.
Graftots Gold Mine began to decline in the early 1990s, and was eventually sold to Royal Gannerties in 1999.
In 2000, Gaveston and Gavestra bought Graftotts, and started work on Graftos Gold Mine in the north of the Goldbelt.
In 2003, the land was sold to Australian Power and Light (APL), who had owned the concession since 1949.
The new concession, known as The Gold Belt, opened in 2011, and is the second-largest gold mine in Australia.
During the decade between 2008 and 2014, there were 651 gold mines in Australia, of which 523 were operated by the Government.
The most successful mining company in Australia was the Goldcorp, which made up almost half of the companies operating gold mines, with more than 30 companies operating in the Gold Belt.
It’s estimated that around 1.6 billion Australian dollars ($1.8 billion) was mined by the company between 2007 and 2020.
The Australian Government invested $500 million in the Australian Goldfields during this period, and over the next 15 years, it spent $1.3 billion on projects to upgrade, improve and expand existing facilities, expand and modernise existing mine infrastructure, build new facilities, and upgrade and improve existing mine equipment and infrastructure.
In 2018, the Commonwealth of Australia signed an agreement with Gannatt and Gartner (now Global Gold Group) to develop the Gold Hills project.
This investment, which will include the installation of 1,500 kilometres of tunnels to transport gold from the Gold Mines to the Gold-Crown Gold-Gold Hills deposit, is expected to create an additional 3,000 jobs in the state of Queensland.
This is the third Australian project to receive Commonwealth funding, following the construction of the AGOA Goldmine and the Queensland Goldfields.
In 2019, Garters Goldmine, the company which operated Grafto Mines, purchased Graftochts Goldmine from the
