Gold prospectors discover frozen mammoth baby
For a long time gold was found in the Yukon and Klondike. Now the mummified woolly mammoth baby has been thawed from the permafrost there. The researchers are excited. The animal has already got a beautiful name.
eA miner was doing bulldozers along Eureka Creek south of Dawson in northwest Canada. The excavator hit something hard in the mud. After a few looks, the man called his boss. There is something there to look at. This discovery has broad implications.
In northwestern Canada, gold prospectors have found a well-preserved mummified woolly mammoth. Workers discovered a female cub while digging in the permafrost in the Klondike Goldfields on Tuesday, The provincial government divided Yukon and Trondik Hoshin Indigenous Peoples. It is the most complete mammoth found in North America.
The elders of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in people called him Nun cho ga (Big Baby Animal). Geologists from California and the University of Calgary suspect that Non Chu Ga died during the Ice Age and froze in permafrost more than 30,000 years ago.
Woolly mammoths inhabited Eurasia and then North America for hundreds of thousands of years. The species became extinct on the mainland about 13,000 years ago – on some Arctic islands after several thousand years.
Nun cho ga is an “amazing scientific discovery,” said Grant Zazula, a paleontologist from the agency responsible for broadcasting global news. Hair and skin have been preserved. “If you look at her feet, you find that they are very small in her toenails and her toenails are not completely hardened yet.” Its length is about 140 cm. Initial investigations indicated that she was about a month old when she died.
It is the second woolly mammoth cub to be discovered worldwide, the report said. In 1948, parts of a mammoth calf, called Evie, were found in a gold mine in the US state of Alaska.
In 2007, a woolly mammoth emerged from the permafrost in Siberia. This specimen – called Lyuba – is estimated to be around 42,000 years old.
