Faded Yukon Gold Rush Town, Population 20, Mines Its Weirdness

KENO CITY, Yukon Territory — The journey to the heart of Yukon’s historic mineral wealth started with a question posed to a waitress at the aptly titled Gold Rush hotel in Whitehorse, the territorial capital: What’s the weirdest place in Yukon?

Her answer was a patch of pay dirt around 290 miles north, past endless forests of spruce and golden-leafed aspen, at the end of a gravel road known as the Silver Trail. There lies Keno City, a gold-rush-era relic with about a dozen full-time residents, tap water not fit for human consumption and two bars whose owners haven’t been on speaking terms for more than a decade.

Perched among hills rich in silver, zinc and lead, Keno City began as a Swedish prospector’s staked claim in 1919, its name inspired by a popular gambling game and intended to lure hearty fortune-seekers with the promise of an ore-laden metropolis in Canada’s frigid northern reaches.

People made a go of it here for 70 years, as the region became one of Canada’s largest producers of silver. But in 1989, the town was largely emptied by the closure of the United Keno Hill Mine. That turned the nearby company town of Elsa into a ghost town and prompted even the most stubborn holdouts to rebrand their beloved mining outpost as a quirky testament to human tenacity.

“You walk into a place like Keno and you’re like: ‘What? How many people live here, 12?’” said Dirk Rentmeister, 57, a former miner who grew up in Keno and was drying out a freshly detached moose head in his driveway.

For the record, the population is 20, according to the 2016 census, but that includes part-time residents like Mr. Rentmeister, the owner of the Silvermoon Bunkhouse motel, who returns each summer to capitalize on visitors’ desires for nostalgia, nature and all-terrain-vehicle rides through the wilderness.

While this dot on the map has seen prospectors, prostitutes, miners and bootleggers come and go, it serves as a lesson on the dangers of betting it all on resource extraction, a capricious industry that has left the region scarred by environmental contamination and economic collapse.

Since its well was damaged in 2015, the hamlet has relied on drinking water trucked in by the government. Officials have found dangerous levels of uranium, arsenic and other minerals in the groundwater, contamination too costly to treat for so few residents.

“It’s a scary situation,” said Mike Mancini, the former director of the Keno Mining Museum, who owns the only pizza joint for hundreds of miles. “That’s what people are concerned about. How long will the government pay the bill?”

Still, residents have stuck around this long, and they refuse to consider leaving.

As a child, Mr. Mancini, 56, lived in a tarpaper shack in No Cash, a nearby station for the mine’s tramline, before his family moved to Keno. He stayed after the mine shut down and helped transform an old clapboard dance hall into the museum, which houses artifacts like antique mining equipment, midcentury home appliances and funeral dresses.

Making pizzas has helped Mr. Mancini make ends meet, but the lifestyle keeps him here, as do his neighbors.

“We’re like one big unhappy family,” he said. “Some people still don’t agree with things that happened 40 years ago, but if there’s an emergency, we come together.”

Little love is lost between the owners of Keno’s two bars, which just happen to face each other across the unpaved main street.

On one side is the Keno City Hotel, a long-derelict maroon clapboard pile that Leo Martel bought 11 years ago and renovated, its first-floor bar now furnished with pool tables, a piano and a sign over the bar top reading, “I thought I was wrong once, but I made a mistake.”

On the other side lies the Sourdough Roadhouse, a pub that Jim Milley bought 10 years ago, crushing Mr. Martel’s dreams of a bar monopoly.

Theirs is a feud steeped in competition and fermented with age. Both first arrived in Keno as young men. Both serve alcohol. And both nurse mutual grudges that neither is willing to let go of.

“He backed into a liquor license,” said Mr. Milley, 63, a wiry chain-smoker with a long gray beard, as he stood on his pub’s front porch, several feet away from Mr. Martel’s hotel door. “Now we have two bars for 12 people.”

“I wanted that bar across the street before Jim,” Mr. Martel, 66, said, his blue eyes narrowing as he sipped a beer in the hotel later one evening. “He needs conflict.”

Keno thrives by embracing its eccentricities. The village has no cellphone service or stores, and the nearest police officers are stationed 38 miles away.

At times, locals said, unusual characters show up, like the woman who wandered into town one winter and began burning library books to stay warm, and the ex-convict who came looking for a stockpile of buried guns and money he had heard about from a fellow inmate. (He never found it.)

In Mr. Mancini’s front yard, bushes have grown up among a collection of junked, rusting 1950s cars.

Back in the ’70s, he said, residents used to celebrate the end of the long winters by swapping partners. These days, they host a summer solstice party under the midnight sun at the top of Keno Hill, 6,000 feet above sea level, and end the season with a raucous Labor Day weekend festival known as Keno Gras, featuring costumes and a pig roast.

The town’s bohemian ethos has turned Keno into something of a magnet for people looking to escape the constraints of the modern world.

“This place feels like time took a holiday in 1978 and never came back to work,” said Doug Tremblay, 59, who works for the territorial government in winter but spends summers panning for gold in rivers and streams, a hardscrabble method known as placer mining that has been attracting people to Yukon for over a century.

Mr. Tremblay began placer mining a few years ago, a passion he admitted is stoked more by the thrill of discovery than the prospect of striking it rich.

“When you see gold rimmed along the bottom of a pan,” he said, “it’s better than sex.”

Prospectors, prostitutes and bootleggers have come and gone. There’s no cellphone service and no police. But there are two bars, whose owners haven’t been on speaking terms for over a decade.

‘Devastating’ overnight fire destroys iconic hotel in Keno City, Yukon

Social Sharing

‘A loss that’s going to be felt for many years and by many people,’ says friend of hotel’s owner

The Keno City Hotel, an iconic local landmark and gathering place in the small community of Keno City, Yukon, was destroyed overnight in a fire, local sources confirm.

Mike Mancini, the owner of the Keno City Snack Bar and a friend of Leo Martel, the hotel’s owner, said he first noticed the fire around 8:30 p.m. Friday, while eating dinner with Martel at his restaurant.

“I saw an orange glow above the roofline of the Keno City Hotel,” he said. “We ran out and realized that the hotel had caught fire.”

“The fire was full-on already by the time we got there.”

Keno City, a former mining boomtown about 335 kilometres north of Whitehorse, has just a few dozen residents and no fire department of its own, and no pumped water source.

Mancini notified the volunteer fire department in Mayo, Yukon, an hour’s drive away, which prepared a truck and hit the road north within 15 minutes, according to Trevor Ellis, the fire chief.

Alexco Resource Corp., which owns and operates mines in the nearby Keno Hill Silver District, provided water trucks so firefighters could work to prevent the fire’s spread into the early hours of Saturday morning.

No injuries were reported and the hotel was unoccupied at the time. The cause is still unknown, but when reached by CBC Saturday morning, Martel said he suspected the fire was deliberate.

“We went in the back and there was fresh tracks going into the hotel and the fire had started upstairs,” he said. “Pretty hard to find somebody that could have done something like that.”

RCMP and the fire marshal are currently investigating, Martel said.

“It’s devastating for the entire area,” said Ellis, the fire chief. “It’s really, really sad.”

‘Heart of the town’

The loss of the hotel is a major blow to the tiny hamlet and to the region, Mancini said.

“I’m basically in shock,” said Mancini. “It’s basically taking the heart of the town.”

“I’ve been here since the ’60s, and it was the place to go for a drink and dancing. It was a great place.”

Martel described it as “a place to have fun” where travellers and locals made good memories together.

“In the years that I was open, I think there was maybe four fights, and one of the guys started three of them,” he said. “We all had fun in there.”

Even Yukon MP Larry Bagnell said he had “fond memories” of the establishment.

“The hotel was an irreplaceable and iconic piece of Keno area history,” Bagnell said in a statement sent Saturday. “This is a truly sad day for the Yukon.”

According to its website, the hotel was built in the early 1920s as accommodation for prospectors and miners exploring deposits in the Keno Hill district. Abandoned by 2006, Martel and his brother purchased the hotel and restored it through “thousands of hours of labour,” Bagnell wrote.

“It was his life,” said Mancini.

“I worked extremely hard to renovate that hotel. I did that to leave a legacy — I loved this place,” Martel said. “I wanted to leave it for somebody to enjoy.”

“I would say it was in the grave and I pulled it out of the grave,” he said. “Now it’s permanently in the grave.”

  • Midnight Sun Hotel to rise again in Dawson City
  • Bar in ‘haunted’ historic Yukon hotel set to reopen

The hotel contained a pool hall, bar and 10 rooms. It’s been closed since Dec. 3, when Martel posted to the website saying it would close for the winter season.

“It is hard to say what the 2021 season will bring,” the post reads.

Martel said with the end of the Keno City Hotel, only two hotels of that age are left in Yukon — the ’98 Hotel in Whitehorse and Dawson City’s Westminster Hotel, known as the Pit.

“The loss of the Keno City Hotel is a loss for the community and the whole of the Yukon,” said Mancini. “It’s going to be felt for many years and by many people.”

The Keno City Hotel in Keno City, Yukon, an important local landmark, was destroyed in a fire Friday night.

The end result will be better overall odds of winning any prize with extended odds of winning the jackpot.

What does this mean for players?

POWERBALL jackpots will continue to start at $40 million and the game’s second prize for matching the first five numbers but missing the POWERBALL will still be $1 million. The game’s third prize level gets a significant five-fold increase from $10,000 to $50,000 for matching four of the first five numbers and the POWERBALL.

The game’s Power Play option also will get a big expansion with a 10X feature. Currently, players can multiply many prizes by up to five times by adding the Power Play option for an extra $1 per play. Under the new design, the Power Play option will be expanded to multiply most prizes (except the jackpot and Match 5 level) by up to 10 times whenever the game’s advertised annuitized jackpot is $150 million or less. The Match 5 prize of $1 million will continue to double to $2 million with the Power Play added.

POWERBALL is an exciting jackpot game with jackpots starting at $20 million and other prizes ranging from $4 to $1,000,000! Each POWERBALL wager costs $2. For $1 more, add Power Play for an opportunity to increase your base POWERBALL winnings.

Powerball Winning Numbers For 7/20/2019 Drawing: $53M Jackpot

Here are the winning Powerball numbers for the jackpot drawing on Saturday, July 20, 2019.

    Deb Belt , Patch Staff
Posted Sat, Jul 20, 2019 at 6:28 p m ET | Updated Sat, Jul 20, 2019 at 11:01 p m ET

The Powerball jackpot has reached $53 million after a player in Tennessee won the July 13 $194 million jackpot. The one-time cash payout for tonight’s Powerball drawing will be $34.3 million.

The winning Powerball numbers are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern time, with Powerball results usually posted within five minutes.

In most states, ticket sales stop at least one hour before the drawing, but a state is allowed to end sales earlier, such as Illinois, which stops sales three hours before the drawing. In Maryland and New Jersey, ticket sales end at 9:59 p.m.; in Virginia, they close at 10 p.m. Check with your state lottery for the cut-off time.

The winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, July 20, are: 05, 26, 36, 64, 69 and the Powerball of 19.

The largest Powerball jackpot in history was $1.586 billion, which was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016.

A player in South Carolina claimed the $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot on Oct. 23, 2018, game officials said; the winner chose not to be identified.

To win the Powerball jackpot a player must match all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball number. The odds of picking the correct Powerball grand prize numbers are one in 292,201,338, which doesn’t change even if more players buy tickets when the jackpot booms.

You have a better chance of winning the Powerball jackpot if you let the computer pick out your numbers, according to the officials with the lottery. About 75 percent of winning tickets over the years had numbers picked by a computer.

Powerball numbers for Wednesday September 23 2020, with information on payouts, winners in each prize tier and the location of any jackpot winning tickets sold.

Here are the winning numbers for Wednesday’s record $700 million Powerball

6, 7, 16, 23, 26, and Powerball 4.

One winning jackpot ticket, worth $759 million, was sold in Chicopee, Massachusetts, CNN reported.

The jackpot is the second-largest in US history. The record, set in 2016, is $1.5 billion.

Powerball drawings happen every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET. Before this Wednesday’s drawing, there had been 21 consecutive ones without a winner.

If you won Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing, try to resist the urge to tell everyone you know — there will be many people who want a piece of the pie. Hire a lawyer who can help you figure out how to claim your winnings and protect your privacy.

You’ll have a choice to claim your winnings in the form of a lump sum or an annuity. The annuity is a series of 30 annual payments, which increase by 5% each year.

Choosing the lump sum might sound tempting, but you’ll get less than the face value of the prize. The cash payout is about $480 million.

Business Insider’s resident personal-finance expert, Lauren Lyons Cole, recommends taking the series of payouts as opposed to the lump sum.

“Most people would do better to choose the annuity rather than the lump sum,” she wrote. “Unless you’re supremely good with money and already have a team of advisers who have proved themselves over time, the annuity is the more cautious choice.”

The billionaire Mark Cuban agrees.

There have been plenty of stories about lottery winners who have seen their lives fall apart after the cash windfall. And some studies have found that lottery winners often have a harder time finding enjoyment in life after winning.

“Congratulations! You may receive a certified check for up to $400,000,000 U.S. CASH!
One Lump sum! Tax free! Your odds to WIN are 1-6.”

“Hundreds of U.S. citizens win every week using our secret system!
You can win as much as you want!”

Sound great? It’s a fraud.

Scam operators — often based in Canada — are using the telephone and direct mail to entice U.S. consumers to buy chances in high-stakes foreign lotteries from as far away as Australia and Europe. These lottery solicitations violate U.S. law, which prohibits the cross-border sale or purchase of lottery tickets by phone or mail.

Still, federal law enforcement authorities are intercepting and destroying millions of foreign lottery mailings sent or delivered by the truckload into the U.S. And consumers, lured by prospects of instant wealth, are responding to the solicitations that do get through — to the tune of $120 million a year, according to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, says most promotions for foreign lotteries are likely to be phony. Many scam operators don’t even buy the promised lottery tickets. Others buy some tickets, but keep the “winnings” for themselves. In addition, lottery hustlers use victims’ bank account numbers to make unauthorized withdrawals or their credit card numbers to run up additional charges.

The FTC has these words of caution for consumers who are thinking about responding to a foreign lottery:

  • If you play a foreign lottery — through the mail or over the telephone — you’re violating federal law.
  • There are no secret systems for winning foreign lotteries. Your chances of winning more than the cost of your tickets are slim to none.
  • If you purchase one foreign lottery ticket, expect many more bogus offers for lottery or investment “opportunities.” Your name will be placed on “sucker lists” that fraudulent telemarketers buy and sell.
  • Keep your credit card and bank account numbers to yourself. Scam artists often ask for them during an unsolicited sales pitch.

The bottom line, according to the FTC: Ignore all mail and phone solicitations for foreign lottery promotions. If you receive what looks like lottery material from a foreign country, give it to your local postmaster.

Promotions for foreign lotteries and sweepstakes usually are phony and entering is always illegal.
