    Default New Prospector

    Hi all,

    Before I moved to Alaska (great move, by the way), I wanted to come here for years to try a little prospecting, just for the fun of it. Now that I've been here for a couple of years, I haven't been out one time.

    I'm looking for a few pointers as to how to get started. I'm in Anchorage, but realize there will be some travel involved.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    The "alaska gold forum" is also helpful

    My favorite area when I started were the creeks up on Turnagain Pass. Most of those creeks are public access 1/8 mile upstream from the highway and there's good color. Search for "Chugach Recreational Mining" for details or go to the Alaska Mining and Diving webpage and check out their links for rec mining. Crow Creek is also an excellent place to start with good gold. $10 for an entire day of panning/sluicing.

    Sorry to take so long to reply - thanks to everyone for the info. I'm filing it all away and will put it to use when the weather warms up a bit. I do appreciate the input.
