Wouldn't you do better in South America where you can mine year round instead of Alaska where you have a short season? Plus it wont be so cold.
no too many obstacles. im happy being in the usa and not catching malaria.
plus the areas im interested in i can pull a million a year plus. i dont have to go to another country to do it. i consider them retarded for going there. they have no law over there. your taking a risk with your life.
i wouldnt mind going to nome in the winter and doing the ocean dredging like that. hell you can work everyday unlike the summer when you have to wait for good weather. i still might go to nome in the winter next year just to give it a try. you can pull 10 grand a day if you work hard and dredge 24/7
you should look into the gpaa. im a member of that and they offer summer trips to nome to mine gold. its a little pricy but well worth it. LINK
