Where is this Gold Mining thing going? I've been Gold prospecting and small scale mining for over eight years. Being in my early thirties, I have asked myself more than once where is this going? Hi, my name is Matt and I am 32 years old. I have been traveling to the west in the pursuit of Gold since my early twenties. I live in a custom camper van while I travel and live life on the road as, I search for that yellow stuff known as Gold. Over the years of living life on the road, I have fell in love with the Nomadic life style and am working to make living a van a full time thing.

About 100 years ago, the town of Nome, Alaska, was a busy place with a population of more than 20,000, most of them gold seekers. Today, fewer than 4,000 people live here and prospecting for gold is no longer the main occupation. Still many come to this town with a golden past hoping to find a share of the precious metal. Natasha Mozgovaya visited Nome. Originally published at - https://www.voanews.com/a/nome-alaska-where-gold-seekers-go-today/4702299.html

http://www.raregoldnuggets.com When rich gold deposits were found in the beach sands along the Bering Sea, thousands of hopeful prospectors traveled to Nome, Alaska in search of riches. The conditions were harsh in Nome, with a very short mining season, but the amount of gold recovered during the first few years was enormous!

I was lucky enough to get hired as one of the two divers on the Norpac, a 50 foot landing craft supporting a 10" dredge. I have had very little time off so I will answer questions as I can, but if you are interested in any aspect of ocean dredging, mention it to me in a private message and I will try to answer your questions in films if I can. I will be uploading more videos as I have the time. I hope you enjoy watching them.

(Time stamps below.) We visited Nome, and had a fantastic time! When we arrived, we were greeted by the mayor...!!!...Richard Beneville, who took us around. (He doubles his day job as a tour guide for the town he loves.). He is not only knowledgeable about the flora and fauna, and Nome's history and heritage, he is also a retired school administrator, Broadway performer, and military brat who found himself in Alaska over several decades ago, starting off as "selling freezers to the 'Eskimos.'" "True story," as he would say, or "HELLO CENTRAL!" He remains one of our favorite experiences, on this trip. He is so attentive to the members of his community, who were full of smiles upon seeing him, I noticed, including children who eagerly waved at and called to “Mr. Mayor,” gushing, "Hello Central!" He's such a lovely host; it was as though we were being shown around the beloved town of a good friend. Though it doesn't look like it, at first glance, Nome's tundra landscape is a trove of animal and plant life. Trees don't grow here, except for the ones planted at the cemetery, so the eye can sweep the horizon. One could easily miss the delicate and yet hardy life, right underfoot. Like the first impression of Nome, one can misjudge, seeing a raggedy town punctuated with seemingly stoic expressions. One could overlook how people have managed to maintain a community where supplies are only flown-in or, if possible, shipped-in. One could miss an exchange of genuinely warm hearty smiles, being intimidated by expressions that are lined by weather, disappointment, and determination. We were received with sincere hospitality, throughout Nome. The constituents of Nome are proud of their little town, though it has its struggles--some more painful than others--it is learning to pull together as a community. So, like its landscape, don't brush over it with your perspective, sweeping up your conclusion into a tidy pile that can be disposed of with a shrug of dismissal. Nome is noble, to me. Like her mayor, she is unapologetically herself. My day in Nome remains one of my favorite days, during my Alaskan adventure. http://www.visitnomealaska.com/ City of Nome: https://www.nomealaska.org/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0:20 video, driving through town 4:08 still images from drive through town 11:16 “Gold Rush” -- Port of Nome dredges 14:09 the countryside southeast of town (Wyatt Earp’s alleged cabin: 15:02) (Iditarod competitor’s house: 17:19 ) 19:18 gold panning on the beach 20:51 the tundra northwest of town 24:36 leaving Nome for Anchorage 26:35 conclusion -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We used this company to organize our time in Nome: https://www.exploretours.com/ The hospital: https://goo.gl/HhYlWO Iditarod arch and lantern: https://goo.gl/QuRxiX and The Iditarod: http://iditarod.com/ The Carrie M.

Here's an idea of what it's like to dredge for gold in Nome, AK. It's amazing how much work you can get done when you don't have the drama you see on the TV Show. Note: The actual amount of gold we uncovered is not what is shown in this video for legal reasons.

Bucket-Ladder dredges are very complex systems which require a large, highly skilled crew to operate. They tend to be custom built for specific conditions. An initial cost will range from several million to 10s of millions depending on the production and depth of operation. Accuracy is a function of vessel management usually achieved with spuds or anchors which is an art in its self. Their ability to reach near shore shallow areas is limited by their draft and the sea state. Bucket ladders can easily achieve 10km3/day and operate to depths in excess of 50m. Bottom coverage is nearly 100%, but the depth of cut is influenced by surface conditions, especially in rough seas. Under excavation will result in lost gold and a higher spillage rate. Historical BIMA Benchmark The BIMA, a 565 foot long bucket-ladder dredge operated by West Gold from 1987 to 1990 is the largest dredge to ever be mobilized in Nome. The initial purchase price was about $4,000,000 while an additional $15,000,000 was invested in the retrofit for Nome mobilization. During the trials and 4 years of operation, the BIMA experienced hull damage from ice, was hindered by rough seas and was shut down due to a broken drive shaft[III]. The BIMA did not proved to be economically viable, but it did set the high bar for material removal and gold recovery. These numbers will be used to establish a baseline for competing technologies to reference. The market price for gold at the time was around $400/oz., the current $1,300/oz. price makes a comparable operation much more profitable. Historic figures show that over its four-year period, the BIMA averaged 1,114,400m3/year of excavated material. For an average of 100 operational days per year, this equates to 11,114m3/day or 464m3/hr. This data is quantified in Table 1 below. Table 1: BIMA Data BIMA Benchmark – Historic 4-Year Period Total Dredged Volume 4,457,602 m3 Duration 4 years Average Season 100 days Daily Average 11,144 m3/day Hour Average 464 m3/hr. By processing this material, they were able to average 295 oz. per day. Here, we assume this ‘free gold’ had a fineness of .89 fine. In today’s market, this production would average over $340,000 per day in gross revenue before operating expenses and taxes. [i] Vlasblom W.J. (2004, Feb).
