Gold! Gold! Gold!
Will we see a modern day goldrush?
Prospector, Shawn Ryan, and his wife, Cathy Wood, have devoted the past 20 years hunting for gold in the Yukon's Klondike region, near Dawson City.  Ryan has estimated that the discoveries he has been involved with could produce 10 million ounces of gold.
He has also been credited with locating the source of the alluvial gold that started the original Klondike Gold Rush more than a century ago.  Read more from CBC.

Penny writes from B.C.

We really appreciate your material!  I thought you might enjoy hearing this little story. We were reading M is for Maple and my son (7 years) took a real interest in the K is for Klondike page. He told me he plans to go and do some gold mining some day. 
Just a few days later a friend of ours came back from the Yukon with gold she found there while mining up there during the summer. He was so fascinated. The timing was lots of fun! He learned that a little bottle of small pieces of gold is worth about $1800 so his excitement grew even more!
