Cariboo Gold Rush
posted by Emma on .
How did the Chinese turn their experience of discrimination during the Cariboo Gold Rush to their advantage? How do you suppose some local workers would have reacted to this?
They started reworking claims abondoned by White miners intent on quick wealth. These claims were less expensive to acquire, and if worked patiently, usually produced a reasonable amount of gold.
The local workers would probably be jealous of the Chinese making profits.
have it got it right?
Yes. You have it right! :-)
