The Fairbanks Mining District, the most productive gold district in Alaska, lies between the Tanana and Chatanika Rivers, 7 to 25 miles from Fairbanks (Pop. 35,000), in east-central Alaska. Most parts of the district are accessible by road, a rarity in Alaska.
Last year was an extreme roller coaster ride for the economy, mining companies, and precious metal prices, and 2009 looks like it’s shaping up to be another wild ride.
Within five minutes there were nine brook trout hanging around, feeding on nymphs I was stirring up. They were having a field day, sometimes getting within inches of my mask. It was almost like they were begging for more food.
My next strategy was to walk anywhere and everywhere that I had been inside this home and garage. I looked on the floor, in the bathroom, I checked the bathroom trash can, and I even pulled the shower curtain back and looked in the bathtub.
...the tax rate for an incorporated, small-scale mine or mining-related business will be reduced from the former 35 percent rate to 21 percent for the 2018 tax year and thereafter.
Within a very few minutes, I had my first nice sounding target. It turned out to be a nice earring-size gold piece that was about a half a gram.
