Comments on: Mining gold in Russia’s remote Chukotka region Tue, 30 Sep 2014 09:42:22 +0000 hourly 1 By: f belz Wed, 12 Aug 2009 16:59:54 +0000 Informative article. Calling Alaska home the remote mines fierce weather conditions are no big thing. You work inside mostly, and learn to deal with the weather. I think that Russia should get the gold out and allow their people to share in the wealth. In the US we have a lot of people who want no progress, no mining, no fishing, and no oil production. I call them the Know Nothing people.
