Miners Tools
Some of the tools that the
gold
miners used were a cradle, pan, shovel, axes, bucket, a windlass and much more. But it actually depends on how your mining the
gold
because you can mine in two different ways, one is alluvial mining and the other is shaft mining. But before they could start mining you'd have to buy a permit which is five shillings which in these days are 5 to 10 cents each. If you didn't have a permit, you wouldn't be allowed to start gold mining.
Sir Edward Hargraves
Sir Edward Hargraves (his real name was Edward Hammond Hargraves) was a very greedy and selfish man. He came to Australia with some
gold
techniques that he picked up at the California
gold
rush and was heading to Summer Hill Creek , but on the way one of the Tom Brothers offered to help and a couple of days later. The Tom Brothers and John Lister found the first
gold
specks in Australia, but Edward Hargraves took all the credit for finding it. He became very rich without giving the Tom Brothers (William and James) and John Lister some credit or money.

Gold Facts!
Gold
is a precious and valuable metal. James Marshall was the first man to find
gold
in California, Sutter Sawmill in 1848! Lots of people left their family and their jobs, just to find
gold
but they were actually risking their lives. Some miners found lots of
gold
, but the others found nothing. Sir Edward Hargraves made the first official discovery in Bathurst, NSW. There were other discoveries, but the government did not approve them.

Many diggers lived in tents and open bark homes. Those who stayed longer sometimes built larger slab huts, but these were still very basic. People would live in small humpies made out of wood, scraps and natural materials found around the area. Also many people would live in a canvas tent because they were cheap and portable. They also had small cottages made of brick or wood and also, to keep the miners warm, they would buy a blanket for about 2 pounds.

IN 1869 Richard Oates and John Deason the found the largest
gold
nugget ever called The Welcome Stranger weighing at 2268 ounces!

The Eureka Rebellion started on the 3rd of December 1884 in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. The Battle of the Eureka Rebellion was a fight between miners and the Colonial forces of Australia. On the 7th of October 1854, a Scottish miner named James Scobie was murdered at the Eureka Hotel. Ten days later after his death, on the 17th of October 1854, between 1,000 and 10,000 miners gathered at the hotel of James Bentley to protest and prime suspect in Scobie's murder.
