  • Eklutna area

    Started getting interested and trying to get out more. Anyone know if Eklutna trail, glacier, river area public use for panning and/or detectors?
    TIA

        Thanks for the tip on the book, just ordered it. I have a metal detector a couple of gold pans some buckets and shovels. I have no idea of what Iím doing, but Iím gearing up to do it. Iíll have some time to use after bear baiting ends at the end of June.

          Looks like my trip to NY to work on my food plots is going bust with the virus. I'm not going to Seattle, Chicago and New York the way it is. I have a small sluice box and extra pans. So going to throw them in the boat and experiment out on PWS this summer.

          There is a lot of iron pyrite in Alaska. Otherwise known as fools gold. To tell the difference; Take a small flat possible gold flake and press a knife blade down in the middle. Fools gold will break, gold will bend under light force. Another way to tell is when you go to sell your gold and the buyer looks at you like your an idiot. The knife trick is preferred.
