Gold Mines were added in version 0.21. At the time, Sidney deVries called them "Gold Ores." Gold Ores only produced one Gold per hit. At some point in between version 0.21 and 0.28, Gold Mines were temporarily removed, only to be added back in version 0.28. Finally, 0.35 made it so Gold Mines gave more Gold. This was the first time Sidney called the Gold Ore "Gold Mine."
