What were they looking for?

I was walking out in the woods when I noticed all this Quartz lying around. It looked like someone had used a large granite boulder as a work table. I could see where they dug out the quartz and brought it down the side of the mountain and broke it up on the granite. there were piles of it. I started digging around and found the piles were very deep and judging from the leave and soil cover the diggings were from long ago.I found small crystals all stuck together and the quartz was like milk almost like marble. My question is what were they looking for?
