Alaska Gold Rush History & Genealogy

1909 In the northern region of the Yukon basinon the upper part of the Koyukuk. Gold was discovered on the Koyukuk in 1899 and while no great amount of the metal has come out in any one year the aggregate entitles the Koyukuk diggings to rank among the important gold regions of Alaska. During the past few years about 300 miners and traders have lived in this region but the number will be greatly augmented this year (1909) as recent discoveries on tributaries of the Koyukuk give promise of a greater gold yield than heretofore The total gold product of this part of Alaska during the past ten years is more than $1,500,000.
