In June, 1899, gold was once found within the sands of Nome seashore. such a lot of diversified tales were advised as to the style within which gold used to be found within the sands at the shorelines of Behring Sea, that it truly is tricky to discover males who agree precisely as to the proof of the invention. The authorised model is that one of many early gold seekers, being striken with scurvy and not able to paintings, spent a couple of hours on a daily basis at the seashore, with the intention to avail himself of the previous time whaleman's medication of sand and salt water. as a way to occupy his time he took a miner's pan with him and, very quickly, confirmed the truth that gold in huge paying amounts may be present in the sands.

There are from one to 3 pay streaks of ruby (garnet) sand. The pay streaks differ from one to 4 inches in thickness, with a mattress rock to 6 toes deep.
Of the seashore, although, I shall have little to assert. Its richness was once ephemeral, even supposing the great wealth of the internal exceeds, by way of a ways, the main sanguine expectancies ever entertained about the sands alongside the shore.
