Pan for Gold

Grab your sluice box, a pick and a pan and try your skill at prospecting. The discovery of gold in Rabbit Creek on August 1896 started the Klondike Gold Rush and more than 100,000 prospectors came to this wild frontier to seek their fortune. Gold mining is not just a thing of the past. A gold nugget weighing more than 20 pounds was found in 1998. This recreational hobby attracts hundreds of people to America’s largest state, which allows prospecting on most public lands. It is one of the top producers of gold. Don’t be surprised if you catch Gold Fever while creating unforgettable memories along the riverbanks of Alaska.
