Natural Gold Nugget Specs

This 49.0 gram natural gold nugget was mined Rampart during the summer of 2022. Rampart, Alaska, holds a storied history in the realm of gold mining. Nestled along the Yukon River, this remote region played a vital role during the late 19th and early 20th centuries as gold seekers flocked to its shores in search of precious metal. However, like many gold rushes, Rampart’s boom period eventually tapered off. The easily accessible gold deposits were exhausted. The challenges of remote location, inclement weather, and logistical issues led to a decline in mining activity. As a result, the gold yields dwindled and many miners moved on to new opportunities. Rampart’s legacy endures in the form of historical sites, artifacts, and the tales of those who once sought their fortunes along the Yukon River. Today, the area stands as a testament to the resilience and determination of those who embraced the hardships of a remote wilderness in their pursuit of Alaska’s gold wealth.

This natural gold nugget weighs 31.5 dwt/49.0 grams (over 1 1/2 troy ounces). The nugget is just over 1″ wide and 1 1/2″ tall.
