Chinese miner working a Rocker Box in the Motherlode

Recommended Posts

Chinese miner working a Rocker Box in the Motherlode....these people are truly inspiring, brave,  to leave their homeland and cross the Pacific to find their fortune, and one day return back to China.  Considering the discrimination they endured it took some courage to do it, read that some even melted their gold and made simple kitchenware items like small pans and other items to hide the gold, painted them black so they were not robbed for their gold.

I agree the Chinese were commited, extremely hard working and endured extreme hardships back then, some were rewarded and some got the short in of the stick working for others!
