Caribou Creek 2010 to 2013
Its been a few years since I wrote about our mining adventures. With the advent of Facebook & such most of our mining updates were posted to friends as soon as we returned to town from a trip to the mine. So much has happened since my last article was written in 2009, seems the years have just flown by. Sarah had a shoulder injury while working at her nursing job that has kept her from being able to get back to the mine. As I wrote about in our history, this is part of our journey in owning Northern Made Creations.
We started dredging some good ground in the canyon area of our claims & came up with some pretty good color.
This was great except that access to the area is very difficult, I raft in with fuel & equipment. This is fine when your heading down river, however it also means I have to hike back out, packing the raft as well.
I was truly blessed to be able to spend some time prospecting with my dad a in the last couple years. There are other treasures to be found mining in Alaska. During his trip out we found an amazing Ammonite fossil. Very cool experience
