68 miners arrived at the docks of Seattle on board the steamship Portland in 1897, and their cargo was one ton of gold. It didn't take long for word to spread around the world and the new gold rush was on. Over 100,000 people laid plans to make their way north to the gold fields in the Klondike, and like stampeding buffalo the race had begun, only they had no idea what they were getting themselves into. This is one of the darker stories in American and Canadian history and thanks to the recent advancements in still photography, this is one of the most well documented stories.

The quest for gold that began at Sutter's Mill quickly spread north, led by prospectors with gold pans. The first big gold discoveries in the north occurred in British Columbia. By 1879, the first gold mining and milling operation in Alaska had been established near Sitka by German engineer George Pilz. It quickly proved a failure and Pilz sought new opportunities. He had heard two reports that suggested there could be gold near the future city of Juneau. One came from naturalist John Muir, among the earliest tourists to visit the glacier now called Mendenhall. But it was an important leader from an Auke Tlingit village who led the gold seekers to Juneau. His name was Kawa.ée. Pilz hired a pair of prospectors newly arrived from the gold fields of British Columbia, Joseph Juneau and Richard Harris, grubstaked them and sent them to meet Kawa.ée on the Gastineau Channel. The Tlingit natives took them to the place now called Silver Bow Basin. According to Harris, "We examined several quartz lodes that cropped out on the edges of the gulch and I broke some with a hammer and Juneau and myself could hardly believe our eyes. We knew it was gold, but so much and not in particles; streaks running through the rock and little lumps as large as peas or beans." It was the first big gold strike in Alaska. Word of the discovery quickly spread. The Juneau gold rush was underway.

This massive gold dredge operated from 1928 to 1959 and solidified itself as one of the most profitable gold mining dredges in Alaska mining history.

Alaska is a place that I have wanted to visit for a long time. However, given the size of the state and given the time and costs to get there, I had the impression that one would need two to three months to see it properly and to make the trip worth it. I was never able to find a block of time like that and so Alaska always remained a project for the future… You know those people it is impossible not to hate out of jealousy because they have a relative that works for an airline and so they are always getting free flights? Alaska is a place that is great for someone like that who can’t devote a block of 2-3 months to exploring, but instead can break the visits up into a couple of weeks at a time using the free flights. Well, last year my sister started working for Alaska Airlines. So, now I’m one of those assholes with the free flights! Let the hate flow, I understand perfectly… Perhaps needless to say, Alaska is the first place I opted to go. The scenery was pretty incredible in Alaska and I could not have shared a video from Alaska without at least some of the scenery being a part of it as well. It was quite the expedition to get to the mine seen in the video, but, as you’ll see in future videos, this mine was not the only reason we flew out to that area. The need to fly out to mines is not unusual in Alaska. Surprisingly few parts of Alaska are connected by road and so flying is often the only practical way to get somewhere. A town may have roads in it, but the roads will not leave the outskirts of the town and go anywhere else. With such towns, everything has to be brought in on a ship if it is along the coast or flown in. I’ve read that one in five Alaska residents has a pilot’s license and that doesn’t surprise me. It probably would have been cheaper if I had gotten my lapsed pilot’s license up to date and rented the plane myself, but I would have been so busy looking at the views that I probably would have flown into a mountain. Better to let someone that knows the area do the flying anyway… Alaska is famous for its placer mines, but it had – and has – plenty of lode mines, such as the one in this video, too. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference. You can see the gear that I use for mine exploring here: https://bit.ly/2wqcBDD You can click here for my full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that colorful niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Panning for gold at Crow Creek Mine, Alaska, is a popular highlight of The Wayfarers' walking vacation in Alaska: Amazing Wilderness. You learn firsthand how to look for gold - and you get to keep whatever gold you find. As they say in this video: "Wow..." And there is a lovely smile of delight at the end. In 2013, The Wayfarers visit Alaska between Sunday, August 4 and Sunday August 11. To find out more about the series of memorable experiences that can be expected throughout the tour (meet huskies and ride a summer sled, visit a reindeerfarm, cruise in the beautiful Kenai Fjords National Park, hike to Exit Glacier and Raven Glacier, etc), please visit The Wayfarers' website http://www.thewayfarers.com/walking-tours/americas-walking-tours/alaska/ Crow Creek Mine was set up in 1896. It was once a very active gold mine, at its peak producing an estimated 700 ounces of gold per month. It shut down as a commercial operation during World War Two. Since 1969 it's been run as a recreational gold mining area by the Toohey family. To quote their website: "The Toohey Family... strive to preserve not only the rich history and beautiful natural scenery of Crow Creek Mine, but also the gold resources within its claims so that many for years to come can experience the same thrill that the prospectors enjoyed when they first arrived at Crow Creek. "Nestled among the Chugach Mountains, Crow Creek Mine offers a unique blend of historical buildings, antiques, rare mining equipment, beautiful gardens, amazing wilderness scenery, hiking trails (including the Historic Iditarod Trail), and access to the explore the mines' original claims." The instructor seen in this video is Andy. Thanks to him for supervising an exciting and cheerful afternoon.

Then, turn up the road to Gold Creek and "Last Chance Basin", where Joe Juneau and Richard Harris struck gold in 1880. In a beautiful, secluded setting near a waterfall alongside Gold Creek — only accessible under our tour's special permit — your prospector shows you how gold panning is done. Then, it's your turn, as you learn how to expertly work the pan with helpful tips and advice. You can choose to pan in the creek, or in the waist-high demonstration trough. Every one of all ages and those with limited mobility can learn how to pan and capture the full gold-rush experience. You're guaranteed to find gold! And, all that glitters is yours to keep. Around you are remnants of the original buildings of the Alaska-Juneau Mining Company, which at the height of production was the largest operation of its type in the world. You'll learn about the mining techniques that were used, and more about the quest for gold that is so much a part of Alaska's history. Take home a souvenir Orelove Brothers Gold Claim Certificate, all the gold you find, and an appreciation of what is was like to seek your fortune in the wilds of Alaska more than a century ago. http://bestofalaskatravel.com
