Klondike Gold Rush
The Klondike Gold Rush was a period of intense gold mining activity in the Yukon Territory of northwestern Canada, following the discovery of gold in the Klondike region in 1896. The gold rush attracted tens of thousands of prospectors, leading to a rapid population boom in the region and the establishment of the city of Dawson. The Klondike Gold Rush had significant social and economic impacts on the region and has since become an enduring symbol of adventure, perseverance, and fortune-seeking.
