      steam thawing. A method of dredging permanently frozen ground in Alaska and the Yukon Territory in which steam is forced through pipes that are fitted with steel points on one end and a driving head on the other end so that the pipes can be hammered into the frozen gravel. Thawing by steam is a slow and costly process. See also: thawing. steam. The frozen body had been found fallen forward on hands and feet, and since to straighten it would be impossible without several days' thawing in a cabin, the coffin had to be of the size and shape of a packing-case; of course the ground for the grave had to be thawed down, for so are all graves dug in Alaska, and that is a slow business. A fire.

Because steam thawing proved to be such a failure, Patty turned to using cold water, drawn from Coal Creek, above the mining area, for thawing the frozen gravels. [ 39 ] Cold water thawing is similar to using steam, except that, as the name implies, cold water is used.

Placer mining is a specialized form of open-pit mining, in which the values in gold, platinum, tin, etc., generally occur in loosely or unconsolidated sand and gravel that under arctic conditions are usually frozen.

All muck and gravel that is frozen is not tightly consolidated or held together by ice. decades. Now, with the recent progress in aviation and because of the strategic importance of the North, active construction and settlement for Permafrost as a Natural Phenomenon remain frozen, serious consideration should be given to artificial freezing Particularly in placer mining, frozen ground has.

In order to find gold-bearing gravel, miners had to sink shafts next to existing creeks down to older stream beds that had been covered up with feet of muck, dirt, and permafrost.
