Gold Prospecting in Alaska

Gold Prospecting Videos

The following links are Quicktime movies of prospecting for Gold in Alaska during Summer of 1997. If there is something you would like to see in addition to these please let me know and I will make it available. The movies are large and time consuming to download so patience is required. All movies are from the Central Mining District in Alaska. The Central Mining District begins approximately 100 miles North of Fairbanks on the Steese Highway.
