The Mine Tour In Alaska That Will Take Your Family On A Fascinating Adventure

In the bright and sunny interior, the hills are laced with precious metals. That lead many prospectors to mine for gold in the Gold Rush of the early 1900’s, and one of the best methods for finding gold was a gold dredge. Fox, a village on the outskirts of Fairbanks, was a hub for dredge mining and several of the historic dredges are still in the area. One is all arranged and maintained so you can see how it worked and explore the interior and exterior of the dredge on this gold mine tour. Gold Dredge No. 8 is all set up for visitors to experience the fun of Alaska’s mining history. Take this great excursion to learn about the history, ride a train, see the Alaska Pipeline, and pan for gold yourself. You’ll love this rustic adventure in Alaska.
