Mining History

Nome Rush

Nome has a rich mining friendly history since it’s discovery in 1898. Just look at these historic pictures. If they have taken 4 million ounces of gold in the 3 mile stretch ‘ONSHORE’, the gold is also still ‘OFFSHORE’. The glaciers didn’t care where the shoreline was as it changed over time.
