One million US dollars for a special Christmas presentHerisau, )
21 pounds weighs the beautiful piece called Alaska Centennial Gold Nugget. Some 100 years after the Klondike Gold Rush (1896), 23 years ago it was found by a gold miner at Swift Creek, Alaska. It is the second largest nugget ever discovered in the Western Hemisphere. Only three pounds heavier is the Boot of Cortez nugget found in Mexico in 1989. Gold nuggets are formed by being dislodged from their original host rock, transported by rivers, and then deposited along with sediments.
The one-million-dollar nugget is being sold by Heritage Auction House, one of the largest auction houses in the US. In total, fewer than 50 nuggets exist that weigh more than 15 pounds, so the Alaska Centennial Gold Nugget auction is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity if you have the wherewithal. The nugget will be presented on December 8 as part of the auction on YouTube. The Klondike Gold Rush attracted about 100,000 prospectors between 1896 and 1998 to find their fortune after the first gold was found near the Klondike River in August 1986. Dawson City grew from 500 residents to about 30,000.
The area of the gold rush is still home to many mining companies today, because there is still gold to be found. In British Columbia, for example, Skeena Resources - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoDWe5aJarQ - is represented. The focus is on the revival of the formerly producing mines Eskay Creek and Snip.
While not in the Yukon, Revival Gold - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynrooOq5PMU - is also in an excellent gold district with its Beartrack-Arnett gold project in Idaho. This property was once the largest producing gold mine in Idaho.
