Good news is gold is leveling out.

I think there is still too much good easy gold in Alaska. The Chinese really did work over that whole area just under 100 years ago. Don't forget that over 20K Chinese lived at French creek alone! However, the day will come when greedy ppl will pull every flake of gold out of the ground!

The price of gold and other commodities is a response to demand. Don't forget that rafting and kayaking are resource intensive. We place a lot of demand on petroleum, aluminum, steel, water, rubber, and beer to float and play. There wouldn't be drilling, mining, and brewing if we didn't create that demand.

^^ I said that once here and damn near got run out. It doesn't mean that all mining is good, but we aren't without impact either.
