Back in Time to Dawson City!
In the picture above, you can see the clear water of the Klondike River draining into the muddy light brown color of the Yukon River. The Yukon River is very clear down by Whitehorse but as the water flows north, the silt-laden waters of the Pelly and Stewart Rivers drain into it leaving it a muddy brown colour by the time it gets to Dawson
Dredge No. 4
Dredge No. 4 is a wooden-hulled bucketline sluice dredge that mined placer gold on the Yukon River from 1913 until 1959. It is now located along Bonanza Creek Road 13 kilometres south of the Klondike Highway near Dawson City, Yukon, where it is preserved as one of the National Historic Sites of Canada. It is the largest wooden-hulled dredge in North America.
