Additional Details:
Gold was discovered in Australia in 1851, and the yearly value of gold export in the last fifteen years has been about $50,000,000. Since that time Africa, the Yukon of Alaska, have outclassed this yield. The gold is what they called alluvial gold, and is not the quartz formation of the earth.
