The name 48ers comes from the first gold rush pioneers who discovered gold in 1948, not 1949. The Californian Gold Rush began on January 24, 1848 at Sutter’s Mill, in Coloma, California. Some of the earliest fortune seekers were known as the “49ers”, but the very first pioneers were known as the “48ers”. These gold-seekers uncovered nuggets of gold worth thousands of dollars. 48ers.com named their service after them because their goal is to help you find nuggets of gold from conversations across the web.
