Mayo Area
Yukon Territory, Canada

 Gold was discovered in the Yukon country during the Gold rush of 1896-98.  The Yukon Territory has been glaciated at least  four times yet, much of central Yukon escaped the effects of the last Pleistocene ice age. The Mayo area is located in the glaciated portion of the southern Yukon where the ice sheets scoured the area. This is a very nice specimen of Alluvial Gold from the Mayo area mining district, Canada.  This elongated piece shows brilliant luster, a bright, brassy color, and strong water wear, the reverse side shows natural surfaces.  Contains approximately 10% Quartz matrix.   Weighs .24 oz.
