Top of page

A compilation of two titles on gold mining in the Yukon, in the past and in the present. Frozen Gold of the Klondike: A lively historical look at gold mining in the Klondike from gold-rush days to the present using archival stills and footage (17 min. 20 sec.). Gold: A description of placer gold mining in the Yukon. East of Dawson City giant dredges cut deep into the creek beds, leaving behind monstrous coils of waste as the gold-bearing gravel is washed. The film shows how gold is trapped and hand-sorted, finally to emerge as precious gold brick (10 min. 3 sec.).
