There is the Frontier store on front street in dawson city that sells the Keene version of the Hydro force.
95% of the know 1 ounce to the pan of dirt has been worked by  3 to 6 differents generations. People now mostly work 1 oz to 100 cubic yards or so ground.  Gold is easier to make in California if the EPA lets the miners do something overthere. Maybe one day.

I see tons of people coming in years after years with a small 30-50 excavator or a tractor or a back hoe, they always end up a few months later for sale to pay for fuel to get back home.

I still encourage anyone willing to see the north it is a great place to see and work. Money can be made working for someone or by establishing a business such being a mobile welder, mechanic, driller, machinist but it is tough on the mental and body.

To start a gold mining operation access to 1 million$ and knowledge is almost a must.

Money can be made using a hydro force or keene highbanker but it is all about volume and as soon someone see you make money they will tell their crew to clean better their excavations and some operators won't like you, that you got gold they left over. It's a catch 22

An agreement with the claim owner to share a percentage of gold found is in order. The advantage is that the claim owner has removed all the overburden. Certainly the small hydro force dredger(scrounger) would have to have the the percentage to make a profit. With the right terms everybody walk away with color in their pocket. Lets not talk about those pesky insects that inhabit the air everywhere  during the mining season.

It's funny how the TV "Gold Rush" shows don't ever show what the bugs are really like out on the creeks.

Dawson City is pretty much bug free in the summer months, as the civic folks spray all the standing water for a couple of miles or so around the town itself ... but get out on the creeks, there's no spraying, and millions of bugs eating everybody alive 24/7!

It all looks so easy on TV!
