Klondike Gold Rush The Klondike Gold Rush effected the lives of many people across the world. Many people came to seek it rich, but not many made big.
Climate of the Klondike The climate in Yukon Territory effected many the way of the miners. The miners had to work with harsh weather temperatures such as 60 below zero. The miners also encounter many blizzards and avalanches. One of the most deadly avalanches in the Klondike Gold Rush was the avalanche in Dawson City, killing 60 people.
Effect on the Miners The effect on the miners and how they mined was gigantic. The miners had to dig through ice cores and permafrost from long ago. The miners had to wait and let the ice thaw before they could mine. So many had to wait awhile causing problems for the prospectors.
Hardships of Miners/Prospector Problems that miners experienced, were the climate, diseases, the terrain, and lawless communities. The climate was usually between 0 degrees and -70 degrees. It was also snowing most of the time. Typhoid fever was one of the most major problems, in the Yukon Territory. It killed off a lot of people. Dawson City was very much a lawless community. When people passed through the growing boom town they were scammed, robbed, or murdered.
Miners lifestyles Miners usually were in the mines trying to find gold. Most miners didnt make any money from the gold because, once the people got there people have already taken all of the gold.
Mining problems All the miners were exhausted from mining for ten hours and not even finding anything. Many of the miners were either delighted and excited or depressed and indulged in finding gold.
Mining methods The miners would usually mine on the river beds. They would most likely pan on the river beds. The gold would go through the pan and the dirt would pass through the holes in the pan, the gold nuggets would get caught in the pan and stay for the miners to keep to trade for money.
