City of White Gold


The discovery of silver in 1859 propelled San Francisco from a chaotic mining boomtown into a spectacular world-class metropolis. Wealth from the Comstock Lode sent San Franciscans into frenzy. Anything became possible. But as extraordinary lives rose with the opulence of the City, the lives of many others were cast into ruin. This historical documentary will tell the epic stories of the City and of the individuals who built the West on Comstock silver.
