Re: rivers with gold

There are plenty of free places to go that are not mined out within 100 miles of Anchorage. See the list at Public Sites for Mining Gold and Other Valuable Mineral

Re: rivers with gold

dreamer60,

Welcome to the Forum! :welcome:

I wish I had known about that list, Steve. :confused:

There isn't much point in letting someone come in and pan gold "for free". That's not what "free gold" means.

There wouldn't be much sense in advertising and letting someone come in and pan gold for free on a piece of ground that isn't already claimed.

So, it really just boils down to State recreation areas. The close-in areas like the Independence mine fits into the category of questionable probability. What is the probability of finding a flake of gold that was passed up by 50,000 panners that preceded you this summer, last summer and every summer for the past 100 years?

If Nome is on the list, look down from the plane you're flying on at about half-way and wave! That's Ophir.

The reality is that in order to get a pan wet and get some gold, you have to get out into the bush and off of the beaten path!

Face it. The easy, drive-up spots amount to over-ran State recreational mining areas.

Rivers with gold still exist. They are becoming harder to find. Opportunity is there. The problem is - it's usually dressed in blue jeans and looks like work! (Thomas Edison)
