Gold Coast - LoveToKnow 1911 (6797 words)
GOLD COAST, that portion of the Guinea Coast (West Africa) which extends from Assini upon the west to the river Volta on the east.
The most aggressive were the Dutch, who from the end of the 16th century sought to oust the Portuguese from the Gold Coast, and in whose favour the Portuguese did finally withdraw in 1642, in return for the withdrawal on the part of the Dutch of their claims to Brazil.
Gold exists in quartz formation, chiefly in the valley of the Black Volta, and is found equally on the British and French sides of the frontier.
Body (3723 words)
Where gold had once only had a single export market, it now had two export outlets, the traditional one to the north to the savanna states and the trans-Saharan trade as before, and the new export trade with the Europeans on the south coast.
Until the mid-seventeenth century the armies of the Gold Coast were composed of the retainers of the nobles, militia of the towns, and mercenaries.
On the Gold Coast, as we have seen, the military became the dominant class and their self interest was tied up in capturing slaves.
