"The entire Northern Arctic region of Alaska is a fossil abundant collection of Pleistocene fauna.  Every day that I was in field I discovered something significant and often spending weeks in the effort.  I would 'cache' tusks and other fossils on gravel bars and return with an airplane to collect them on my way south to Fairbanks. All of these fossil tusks and bones are organic and require special care and curing to prevent degeneration and I find it amazing that government officials such as 'Bureau of Land Management' often collect specimens and display them in their buildings and watch them dehydrate and breakdown to such a degree as to see them disintegrate.  I have spent years just in restoration efforts to prevent any fossil I collect form any 'breakdown.'  These rivers also contain 'amber' and gold in abundance which can be collected by metal detector (placer gold) as bedrock is generally very close.  Associates of mine have discovered nuggets 'visually' in these rivers and more discoveries in 'Nome' Alaska using a metal detector over tailing piles left over by dredge operations one hundred years ago.  I recently saw a five ounce nugget discovered and now is in the Nome museum."

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Gee, it's amazing that the 'experts' charged with restricting "amateur" access don't know how to properly preserve and display the finds they are supposed to protect from us money-grubbers.
