Enjoy a true Alaskan adventure as you pan and mine for gold along Gold Creek and Last Chance Basin, near Juneau! With your guide, learn how to pan for gold, and keep what you find when you’re done! Your guide, dressed in traditional 19th-century attire, will take you to a secluded location along Gold Creek, only accessible with a special permit, and show you what it was like during the Gold Rush for the thousands of gold-seekers who flocked to the region. You have the choice to pan in the creek or enter the water in the demonstration trough – either way, you’re guaranteed to find gold!

Description:
Start your unforgettable Alaskan experience with a historical tour of Alaska's capital city -- Juneau. From Juneau, head with your guide to Gold Creek and the adjacent Last Chance Basin Mine – the place where Joe Juneau and Richard Harris struck gold in 1880.

Learn how to pan for gold and hear why thousands of people hurried to the region to strike it rich during the Gold Rush of the late 1800s. Get the hang of it with help from your guide, and then try it yourself! You can either pan for gold in the creek or go in the waist-high water in the demonstration trough. During your search, you'll be surrounded by the building remnants of the Alaska-Juneau Mining Company, which closed in 1944 due to the WWII labor shortage.

End your day of gold mining with an appreciation of one of Alaska’s most important events, as well as all the gold you find and an Orelove Brothers Gold Claim Certificate!
