After discovery of gold in Gabriel's Gully, hundreds of miners and precious metal hunters flocked to New Zealand to be a part of the frenzy. This influx of people caused new settlements to pop up and different innovation techniques to begin. After a few years of steady success, the gold began to be more difficult to find.
