Prospecting for Gold

This picture shows Prospectors in the 1897 Gold Rush in the Yukon Territory. You wonder if they ever found the "Mother Load" that they were looking for. When I lived in New Mexico, I had a friend that would go prospecting up in the mountains every weekend. He always came back with something, but he probably never paid for his gas and all his equipment with is little finds. Gold Fever has always made more people poor than rich.
