The Klondike Gold Rush was a brief but very impactful to North American history. Would-be prospectors flocked to remote gold fields between 1896 and 1899, after the rare mineral gold was first discovered. News of the discovery had a significant impact to both the US and Canada as at the time both countries were in the midst of a depression. With gold prices soaring and confidence in both the banks and their paper currency at all time lows many men from far and wide made the treacherous trip, a trip many died doing or turned back. For those that made it, the riches of the Klondike awaited.
It’s been more than 120 years since George Carmack, Skookum Jim, Kate Carmack and Dawson Charlie found gold along Bonanza Creek, but the Klondike Gold Rush is still alive and well in Canada’s Yukon Territory and the search for its source.
Goldbank Mining Corp. started its quest to find that source back in 2010 with one goal, and that was to be one of Klondike’s the largest stake holders. Today, Klondike owns 100% of over 20,000 sq km of that prime Gold Rush ground. Goldbank is poised to take advantage of the next Klondike Gold Rush.
