The Yukon-Klonkide Goldfields—Part II
October 2006 by Ron WendtThere has been more written on the Klondike Gold Rush than any rush in the history of the world. Some highlights have been written below, a mere grain of sand of information to glean. The price of gold during the 1890s averaged $20.67 per ounce.
What are the steps for filing a mining claim?
At least 6 million ounces of gold have been produced in Oregon since 1859. Since there are no accurate records of production prior to 1904, it is obvious that total gold production was considerably higher than that which has been recorded.
PDAC’s (Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada) annual convention held each spring in Toronto, Ontario, Canada is generally regarded as the largest and most impressive annual gathering of the mining industry in the world.
The first thing a person should do is seriously consider whether they want to go mining as a hobby or a business, and the tax implications of the choice.
Is there a reasonable and cost effective way to separate out the values?
Greenstone is a dark greenish-black basaltic rock which, along with chloritized schist, forms belts up to 50 miles wide in northern Minnesota, in rocks of Late Archean age. Most belts are 2.6 to 2.9 billion years old.
The harsh Alaskan environment delayed serious prospecting and mining for decades and still continues to stymie exploration activity even though there are likely dozens of hidden major and world-class gold and base metal deposits.
