I have last played this game 15 years ago. It was, as i remember it, a big board game where you could visit the city to buy gold digging equipment and later in the game horses to make you move faster. Out in the wild on the hunt of gold there was robbers and Indians trying to steel the gold.
Does this make sense. And does somebody know this game?

Based on the theme, and the date you played (1990-ish), here are some possibilities. Click on 'em to see if I struck gold:

Klondike

Eldorado

Goldrush

Hot Prospect

Prospecting

Stagecoach

Treasure (in the Canadian Rockies)

From Wikipedia...

Gold digging can mean:

The act of gold prospecting, such as during a gold rush.
A relationship in which a young person pursues an older person for monetary gain. See age disparity in sexual relationships.
Nose-picking (also known as digging for gold)

Hmmm, a game about cowboy nose-pickers. There is a seldom-used theme!
