Most of them were pulled apart by some unexplained prehistoric catastrophic disturbance…’ Unexplained and, I would add, undated, because Hibben’s guess that the finds were ‘ten thousand years old’ is just that – a guess, a wild stab in the dark connected to a loose idea about a terminal Ice Age cataclysm, and nothing more.
That, however, is a minor matter by comparison with the doubts that have been raised over the veracity of Hibben’s discoveries and reports, and over his scientific integrity.
‘In many places the Alaskan muck blanket is packed with animal bones and debris in trainload lots.
Bones of mammoth, mastodon, several kinds of bison, horses, wolves, bears and lions…
As the gold-bearing gravels lie beneath this muck, the miners find themselves, of necessity, digging pits and shafts through the muck to get at the gold beneath.
If anyone reading this has done any relevant research or can shed any further light on the subject, please tell me what you know in the comments section below.In summer, beneath the short-lived Alaskan sun, the frozen muck-masses dripped and fell away in sludgy masses.Within these oozing piles, the bones of mammoth, camel, horse, moose, and carnivores were everywhere in abundance…Apparently a whole herd of mammoth had died in this place and fallen together in a jumbled mass of leg bones, tusks and mighty skulls, to be frozen solid and preserved until this day…‘Mammals there were in abundance, dumped in all attitudes of death.
So far as I’ve been able to establish, the cataclysmic picture of Alaska at the end of the Ice Age first really began to take shape in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s and derives primarily from the work of two scholars, Froelich Rainey and Frank C. Writing in the April 1940 issue of American Antiquity, for example, Rainey, a professor of anthropology at the University of Alaska, described wide cuts, miles long and up to 140 feet deep, that were then being sluiced out by the gold mining industry along stream valleys tributary to the Tanana river in Fairbanks District: ‘In order to reach gold-bearing gravel beds an over-burden of frozen silt or ‘muck’ is removed with hydraulic giants.
