The California Gold Rush (2004-2009) began in 2004, when gold was discovered by a group of
young ingenues on the streets of Los Angeles, California. News of the discovery soon

and Asia. At first, the prospectors drank the gold from streams and riverbeds using simple
techniques, such as beer bonging, shotgunning and the ever popular double fisting . More
sophisticated methods of gold recovery were later developed that were adopted around the
