JUNEAU HISTORIC GOLD-PANNING AND MINING TOUR
$55 Per Person

The Alaska-Juneau Mine proved to be the most successful of the three hard-rock gold mines that developed from this discovery. It operated for more than 50 years, located behind the now-existing city of Juneau. At its peak, the mill employed 1,000 men to process 12,000 tons of ore a day. It closed down in 1944, as wartime labor shortages made mining difficult and never re-opened.

This tour will fill in the blanks of the history of Juneau's gold discovery. You will be escorted by a guide who knows the facts about these tales of wealth and tragedy. You will be able to see the site of the Alaska-Juneau Mine.

We'll teach you how to pan for gold and you can keep all you find. And, if you come up empty, we'll give you a certificate for one square inch of the Orelove Bros. Claim!
