Stare up at a gravel-eating 8-storey monster dredge covering two-thirds of a football field. Its giant iron buckets chomped into rocky creek beds, spitting out miles of gravel trailings that snake across the Klondike goldfields. Join a guided tour to see the inner workings of the biggest dredge of its kind in North America, a historic reminder of the amazing inventions and adaptations needed for mechanized mining in permafrost.
