Here's a pic of some Alaskan Gold from the Blue Ribbon Mine I thought I'd share (not the gold, you'll have to sluice your own). Also, I'll post pics of a trommel (70 yd/hr) that I built using, among other things, a piece of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, or just go to http://www.alaskafreegold.com and then to the image gallery. (Corrected the link)

Thanks for sharing the gold pics. Keep it coming.

Glad you enjoy it. Here's about 10 ounces in a pan, same area (notice some of the gold is quite rusty, also that it's coarse and not water-worn):

Here's some I've been saving from when I did some dredging 8 or 9 years ago. The bigger pieces are around some pretty necks.

I plan on opening up about 600 acres of my claims this summer to people who want to dredge or sluice their own (if there's enough interest).

That way, people will have the opportunity to get their own gold, and it's accessable by road from the Petersville Road.

Where roughly are your claims?

Thanks, Which ones, I'll check it out and fix it.

I'm still migrating stuff from my other sites, and uploading images and pages.

And if anyone is interested, email me for details. I just got hold of a TD-9 and a small excavator, which will mate well with my 25yd/screening plant. I may also sell an interest in the mine.
