The Discovery Claim
This is the location of the "Discovery Claim" along Rabbit Creek (later: Bonanza Creek), near Dawson City, Northwest Territory (later: Yukon Territory). It was at this location, in August of 1896, that "Siwash" George Washington Carmack, "Skookum" Jim and "Tagish" Charley found the gold that resulted in the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush.
