Abstract

The Qing Dynasty was in the late stage of Chinese feudal society, and was a feudal autocratic regime established by Chinese minorities. In the early period of Qing governments rule, there was a rare prosperous situation in feudal society, that is, the prosperous period of Kang and Qian Dynasty. At this time, Chinas society was unprecedented stable, unified and strong, which provided favorable conditions for the development of gold mining industry in Xinjiang to a certain extent. But this prosperity and stability did not last. With the increasingly decadent and declining of the Qing government, the gold mining industry in Xinjiang also suffered a heavy blow and gradually declined. But the golden period of prosperity and stability is short after all. After Emperor Jiaqing, the Qing government became increasingly corrupt and incompetent, and the gold mining industry in Xinjiang also suffered a heavy blow and gradually declined. In the first half of this paper, the graphs and data in statistics, the maps in geography and the pictures in sociology are used to show the readers intuitively and vividly the rich gold deposits in Xinjiang and the tortuous course of the development of gold mining industry in Xinjiang. In the latter part of this paper, the historical materialism method is used to explore the reasons why the rich gold deposits in Xinjiang failed to develop in the end. The study of this paper has certain reference significance for the development of gold mining in Xinjiang today, and also helps people all over the world to understand the economy of Xinjiang.
