We have to remember that the earliest miners were not geologists, but came from a variety of backgrounds. Their survival depended on finding enough gold so they worked hard and adapted to whatever challenges these new areas presented.
Back in the early 1800s, there was a gold mine being dug in a mining community called Garden Valley. Garden Valley is located northeast of Sacramento, between Georgetown and Coloma. They called it Garden Valley because there were some miners who thought there might be more money in growing and selling vegetables than in mining for gold.
Gold and other valuable metals are often deposited in breccia and rubble formed by flat or gently-dipping faults. Such faults are commonly found in areas of crustal stretching caused by the movement of tectonic plates. Flat-faults are especially common in southeast California, southern Arizona, and northern Sonora, Mexico. However, they can be present anywhere that crustal stretching has occurred.
