The Klondike is a gold rich region of Yukon territory of Canada. In the late 1800's, the Klondike had a gold rush, but resulted in a failure. However, the Klondike is still gold rich, and is being mined still today.
In Gold Rush
During the off-season, Todd and Jack Hoffman went to the Klondike in Canada to find a second mine to work at during the second season. They found a claim, but they were unable to get a water permit, so they were unable to mine. After "Dakota" Fred bought the Porcupine Creek claim from under the Hoffmans, they relocated and found a claim at Quartz Creek with virgin ground in the Klondike.
