Interior Alaska, including Nome,
ind Seward peninsula, will produce
ibout 110,00,000 in gold during the
>resent season, according to Collector
>f Customs for Alaska J. P. Pugh. who
?eturued to Juneau on the Jefferson
liter completing a tour of the Terri
tory visiting the sub-ports of Eagle,
Fairbanks, St. Michael and Nome, and
jther mining towns. The business out
look. Mr. Pugh says, is good for that
part of Alaska and things are especial
ly brisk nt Nome now on account
of haviug a good supply of water for
mlniug purposes. It is estimated that
tho clean-up will be much larger there
than was first anticipated. Mr. Pugh
expects the customs reports to show
fully sb largo commerce for the inter
ior as tho previous year.
Dredge mining, he says, is getting
to be a tremendous Industry in the esc
tlons visited. At Nome and on Sew
ard peninsula there are all told 46
dredges in operation. The Union Con
struction company is building an im
mense dredge for the Ruby section
and a large dredge is being assembled
in the Circlo City district. Fairbanks
Is uncovering some quartz that is
showing up well he says and is taking
on an air of permanency.
The gold production for this year,
Mr. Pugh says, will be. according
to data gathered by himself, something
about as follows: Nome, $4,000,000;
Ruby. $1,000,000: Idltarod, $1,500,000;
Fairbanks, $4,000,000. These figures
ho thinks are conservative.
The tin mines of Seward peninsula

ore and placer tin ready for shipment
that is worth $400 per ton.
