    Kenai Peninsula Alaska

    Hello all, Iíve been in Alaska a couple of years and have been looking to get back into gold prospecting on or around the Kenai peninsula. If you know any folks looking for an extra body to help out or are willing to share information of our beautiful area, let me know. Cheers and happy hunting

    There are quite a few public access areas managed by the state. Iíve found good gold at Resurrection Creek for example. Maybe start on those lands?

    Thanks KevinInColorado , Iím very familiar with Resurrection Creek, when you were prospecting there were you panning or using other recovery methods?

    Are you familiar with Welcome to Land Matters? It has up to date info on current claims and also historical claim records.....easiest way to find gold is to search for it in areas where it has been found before while making sure you avoid current claims.

    Good luck.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Land Matters has limited current claim information in Alaska at present. They changed their system and we are still chasing down those changes. We have a program in place to bring that claims data current but funds and time are short.

    Alaska has a very nice claims mapping system in place. Give it a try:

    The Alaska mapper is great for State of Alaska mining claims but IS NOT accurate for mining claims on BLM land. Though it gives you an idea do not trust it without checking the SDMS and of course a final test is the recorders office search.

    I primarily used a Gold Cube with the Gold Banker attachment on top. There is a dredging season on that creek too. Be sure to avoid digging Dredge tailings LoL!

    Thanks for the insight, yeah I know the season falls in the spring before the salmon run on the creek. Are you from Alaska? I do realize youíre user name says otherwise

    Nope, CO based. I spent 11 weeks on a driving trip in 2018 and prospected 17 public spots in BC, YK and AK. Awesome trip!
