For a long time gold was found on the Yukon and Klondike. Now a mummified woolly mammoth baby has thawed from the permafrost there. Researchers are excited. The animal has already received a beautiful name.

IA miner was driving a bulldozer along Eureka Creek, south of Dawson City in northwestern Canada. The excavator hit something hard in the mud. After seeing something, the man called his master. There is something there that needs to be seen. This discovery has wide-ranging implications.

Gold diggers have found a well-preserved, mummified baby woolly mammoth in northwestern Canada. Workers on Tuesday discovered female cubs while digging in permafrost in the Klondike gold fields, divided the government of the region Yukon and Trondic Huachin indigenous people. It is “the most complete mummified mammoth found in North America”.

The elders of the Trondic Huacin people named him Nun Cho Ga (in English: big baby animal). Geologists from CA and the University of Calgary suspect that Nun Cho Ga died during the Ice Age and was frozen in permafrost more than 30,000 years old.

Woolly mammoths inhabited Eurasia and later North America for hundreds of thousands of years. The species went extinct on the mainland about 13,000 years ago – on some arctic islands several millennia later.

“Nun cho ga” is an incredible scientific discovery, said Grant ZaZula, a paleontologist at the agency responsible for broadcasting Global News. Hair and skin were protected. “If you look at his feet, he has tiny little nails and toes that haven’t fully hardened yet.” She is about 140 cm tall. Preliminary investigation revealed that she was about a month old when she died.

The mammoth was a large mammal adapted to the cold conditions of the Pleistocene ice age, about 2 million years ago.  It spread to North America, Europe and Asia.  Its teeth can be more than 3 meters long.  Closely related to the elephant, it is depicted in cave paintings being hunted by early humans.  The large mammoths became extinct about 10,000 years ago with the retreat of glaciers.  Human hunting is believed to have quickly put an end to it.  Aurorae are caused by charged particles from the Sun (moved to the poles by the Earth's magnetic field) hitting the atmosphere.

The report said that this is the second woolly mammoth cub to be discovered worldwide. In 1948, parts of a giant calf named Effie were found in a gold mine in the US state of Alaska.

In 2007, a woolly mammoth emerged from permafrost in Siberia. This specimen, named Luba, is estimated to be 42,000 years old.
