This is the story of Johan Bain and David’ Frisco’ Andrews. A nervous hand trembled as it reached into the cold water before pulling a rock the size of his hand from the flowing stream. He knew as soon as he touched it what it was. Bismuth, silica (quartz), tellurium, and mercury clung to dull yellow rock.

Holding it out toward Andrews, wild-eyed, he yelled to his companion.

“Bonanza, ya?”

Walking to him, David saw the yellow stone with other minerals clinging stubbornly to the gold. Taking the soft metal into his own hands, he felt exhilarated at the sheer size of the mineral. The gold warmed from his touch, feeling heavy and living in his calloused hand.

Perhaps this was where the Fever comes from. Gold Fever.
