hey u.s. generally the bones are washed away, the tusks are found because they are made of ivory which apparently will fossilize better than bone but they do find bones as well once in a while, when the soil is being ripped with bulldozers you dont really feel the bones but when you hit a tusk with the ripper tooth it will almost stop the dozer so of course you get out and check the ground they are alot heavier than they look and worth a boatload of money depending on size and condition

What type of soil is it that preserved the tusks so well...clay?

the tusks are generally found in the layers between the clay and the waste gravel around ten or more feet below the ground level layer, depending on the lay of the land and where the bedrock is found, sometimes it may be over 20-30 feet or more but that is a waste of time trying to mine due to the high cost of stripping the layers off to get to the gold bearing bedrock

The road in to camp.

Back in the late 1800s, early 1900s gold miners would use a boiler with pipes to drive steam into the ground to thaw the permafrost so they could dig down to the gold. This is one of those.

Hej US cheers.gif Yeah the Yukon is a fun place. Dawson city goes from a pop of ~400 in winter to 20,000 in summer. A majority are Germans 'doing the nature' chuckle.gif

We have a Lapland Gold beer here, but it's not one of our favorites.

What? No artwork on the label...well there's a star on the label, so I guess it's something.
