Not many people know that Aruba had its very own version of the Gold Rush. For much of the 19th century the precious metal was mined on the island mainly with the aid of dynamite. An English company built a gold smelter at Bushiribana in 1872, a picturesque spot near the sea that was sacred to the island's original inhabitants, the Arawak Indians. Over the years Aruba's gold industry extracted 3 million pounds of the metal.
