    ... stuffed animals, displays on mammoths and mastodons, permafrost and the history of the Alaskan Highway. Also some beautiful carved walrus ivory and native beadwork, masks and clothes.

    ... it is & how it does stay at the bottom of the pan when you know how. Then you take it to be weighed (we had a total of $35 worth according to them). Then their money spinner kicks in by being given the opportunity to have it put into a glass pendant, for a price (or you could just keep it in the vial provided).

    ... operation. After collecting your gold in the provided film-like canisters, you could take it inside, have it weighed and given the value of it.
