Klondike placer miner makes rare discovery of extinct muskox skull

A placer gold miner in Yukon's Klondike region has found a rare for-the-Yukon helmeted muskox skull and horns.

Stuart Schmidt was using a machine to dig a drainage ditch at his operation on a creek in the Indian River valley, south of Dawson City, on Monday when he noticed what he thought was the tip of a bison horn sticking out of the muck.
