History buffs, this one’s for you. On this Alaskan shore excursion, you’ll have the chance to relive Juneau’s mining heritage as you tour what was once the world’s largest gold producing mills. During this Juneau Gold Mine Tour, you’ll hear the story of this great Alaskan mine that was the heartbeat of the state’s capital.  Constructed in 1913, the Alaska Gastineau Mill was a revolutionary plant that introduced new technologies to the mining industry.  

Following a short ride to the mill, you will venture underground into the conveyer tunnel that was once used to transport crushed ore to the mill. Put on your hard hats and proceed along a 360 ft. long tunnel. Experienced miners demonstrate hard-rock mining techniques and give you a feel for the mining lifestyle. After the gold mine tour, return to the mill site, where after a brief demonstration, you can pan for gold and garnets from the tailings of the mine. Pay dirt is guaranteed and you keep what you find! You will also see the first steam locomotive to come to Alaska, and can spend the rest of your time exploring the ruins and visiting the gift shop. 

NOTES

  • Dress warmly for the underground portion of the tour as temperatures can dip into the low 30's.
  • Be advised that there will be some walking over uneven terrain and stairs.
