Frobisher and his men tried to make a peaceful settlement, but instead they had strong disagreements and were unhappy, so they came back with 1350 tons of "gold"!
It was soon discovered that the "gold", was actually iron pyrite (also known as fool's gold)! Therefore, it was worthless. Because of this he was fired and had to find another job. In 1588, Martin Frobisher became a knight after battling with the Spanish Forces.
In 1594, during a fight with the Spanish Forces, Martin was shot. Frobisher died a few days later in Brittany, France. He died when he was 59 (or 55) years old.

(from # 8) Martin was born in 1535 (some say 1539) in Yorkshire, England. While Frobisher was adventurous, he was violent and not disciplined. He made three voyages to Canada. The first time was to find the Northwest Passage. The second and third voyages was to find "gold"! First Voyage(1576) Why did Martin Frobisher go to North America? Martin wanted to find the Northwest Passage.
What happened in Frobisher's first voyage? While he was sailing, he saw land (what is now known as Labrador). Since it was getting very cold, Martin Frobisher had to sail west. Martin sailed through a bay, now known as Frobisher Bay, and reached Baffin Island.
At Baffin Island, some natives kidnapped some members of Frobisher's crew and he tried a few times to get them back, but unfortunately, he wasn't able to get them back, but he did go back home with "gold"! Second Voyage(1577) Martin Frobisher was ordered by his leader, that he shouldput off the discovery of the Northwest Passage and find more "gold".
On the second voyage, Martin went with extra ships and extra men. Frobisher reached Frobisher Bay, and spent weeks to collect "gold".
When he and his crew came back to England, they brought back 200 tons of "gold"!
Queen Elizabeth I wanted more "gold", so she sent Martin Frobisher back for another voyage. Continued Life This is Queen Elizabeth I. She supported Martin.
