This week on The Alaska Show Podcast, with gold just hitting $2,000 an oz, I talk to Augie Krutsch, the owner of AKAU Alaska Gold Mining Adventure Camp in Nome, Alaska, and Emily Riedel, Bering Sea gold dredger - to talk all things gold mining in Nome. Augie's family has been mining this area since the 1930s - and he paints a picture of the history of the place and his own adventures in commercial gold mining. Augie tells me how to win the mining game and why he doesn't care when guests walk out with 5 oz nuggets they find on his claim on the historic Anvil Creek.
