Black Hills Gold Rush Towns (Images of America)
Paha Sapa, the Black Hills, sacred land of the Lakota Indians, had long been the destination for prospectors. In 1874, Gen. George Armstrong Custer conducted an expedition into the Black Hills confirming rumors of gold. The findings of the expedition were widely publicized and the gold rush began. Unable to stem the tide of prospectors seeking their fortunes, the federal government opened Black Hills Native American land to settlement in 1877. During the rush, from 1874 to 1879, unknown numbers of mines were worked and more than 400 mining camps and towns sprang up in the gulches overnight. When the mines played out, most of the settlements died. Black Hills Gold Rush Towns looks at the mining towns that once flourished.

Wayne Moss in The Trinity Alps Companion quotes Jorstad -- a passage from Jorstad's journals: ----- [Talking about Brown's Mine-- Jorstad writes] -- "This hydraulic operation (also known as the King Mine and Corbett's Rattlesnake Digs) was probably the most successful venture of any in the whole North Fork District ..... not a big placer, probably only a single monitor ... but it must have been very rich, although the first old-timers had gone over the creek from end to end, and no doubt did very well .... King with his giant, [monitor] took out $50,000 in the space of a few years ... Then he sold it [the mine and all its claims] to a man named Brown ... [who] did little with it .... [and the claims lapsed] .... Next, a man by the name of Mel Corbett from Los Angeles, a bandleader, claimed it, and with this advent a new era in mining dawned on the Rattlesnake. He and his wife, Faye, and their two four-year old daughters, Arlene and Darlene, were to bring not only a touch of Hollywood to the Trinity backwoods but also methods of extracting the precious metal [gold] from the sands never attempted before. Machinery was the key, big machinery, bulldozers, backhoes, trummels .... After Mel had done his bit and retired back to his old haunts in Los Angeles, one of his associates took over the operation, having first, however, married [Mel's] daughter Darlene. But the association didn't last long. A few years later it was Darlene herself, Darlin' Darlene as she came to be known, who had taken over the mining enterprise." --Excerpt from the journals of W.O.

Barrick AGM protest
Barrick AGM protest
The day after Barrick Gold's AGM this year, the police in Papua New Guinea burned down more than 300 houses belonging to second- and third-generation landowners in Porgera. The houses are adjascent to one of the largest gold mines in the world, operated by Barrick Gold on land that rightfully belongs to these indigenous peoples. Earlier, Barrick had called for a State of Emergency and the deployment of troops in the area to tackle "tribal warfare." and "illegal" mining. While Barrick's activities have left surrounding communities deprived and impoverished, by polluting their river and habitat, they instruct their security guards to shoot those who enter their lease area. And yet, when those displaced and impoverished by Barrick ask to be relocated, Barrick gives them the cold shoulder. According to local papers, recently the number of people around the mine in search of gold had increased to an unacceptable level. The lanowners association believes that the state of emergency, which is allegedly partly financed by Barrick, is a move to crush the indigenous resistance.
