A highly alluring metal, gold has cast its charm upon people all over the world. Its bright yellow glimmer has sparked countless gold rushes that led to development of many towns, states and cities. Indeed, the discovery of gold in an area makes for some interesting stories, not only from a mining perspective but also a historical one.
A perfect example of this is the gold mining history of Australia. The 1880s and 1890s saw numerous gold discoveries indifferent areas in Western Australia. In 1885, Charles Hall made several important gold discoveries with Jack Slattery that would lead to the Kimberley gold rush and the subsequent establishment of Halls Creek. The Yilgarn goldrush was sparked by an 1887 discovery near Southern Cross. These are just some of the gold finds that led to droves of prospectors populating and developing the area.
To gain a better perspective of the impact that gold discovery has had on the land down under, lets set our sights on Kalgoorlie. One of Australias most famous, the Kalgoorlie gold rush is largely credited for spiking Western Australias population from a meager 49,782 in 1891 to a whopping 184,124 by1901. In just 10 years, the area that was once populated by barren bushes and hopping kangaroos was filled with bustling human activity.
