Bonanza Creek - Added 9/5/18. Bonanza Creek – Added 9/3/18. Two twenty (20) acre federal mining claims on Bonanza Creek. These claims are roughly 50 air miles southwest of Nabesna near Chisana, Alaska. The claims are the lowest two claims on Bonanza Creek, immediately above the old ghost town of Bonanza (see map).

The claims are AKAA 029712 Bonanza #1 and AKAA 029713 Bonanza #2.

Current access is overland from the town of Chisana, less than 10 miles distance. Chisana has a 3000 foot airstrip capable of handling almost any size aircraft but no commercial facilities. https://www.airnav.com/airport/CZN

See a thread elsewhere on this website about looking for gold on Bonanza Creek.

Chisana general location

Bonanza #1 and Bonanza #2 claims location on lower Bonanza Creek

The claims have been mined in the past. Over the many decades since tailings from the hydraulic mines upstream have been deposited and winnowed by floods, creating rich secondary placers. The claims are currently permitted for gold dredging and other activities. They are however within Wrangell St. Elias Preserve and are subject to more conditions and oversight than might be the case elsewhere. Due to this and the remote location, please – serious inquiries only. Both claims, $80,000.00 Contact Dudley via email at akminer96067@aol.com

Alfred Creek - Added 9/13/18. One 40 acre state mining claim with equipment for sale. Good claim but at 76 years old I decided to keep my easier working claims and sell this one.

Lake Creek - Updated 4/11/2018. Riversong Gold Mine is a 40-acre Alaska state leasehold located on Lake Creek, a premier rainbow and salmon stream in the Talkeetna Recording District. This secluded property is north of the confluence with the Yentna River and is perfect for someone who loves working alone or with a partner in an unspoiled wilderness that’s rich in alluvial gold and Alaskan wildlife. Everything is fully operational with a state approved multiyear mining plan good until July 2020.

There are approximately ten acres alongside Lake Creek that is an old riverbed comprised of alluvial deposits. The adjoining bench is an ancient riverbank that slopes up to a second riverbed and then a steep hillside. Widely spaced birch and spruce minimize the need for tree cutting and leave abundant room for placer mining. The active river channel always produces fine gold, small garnets, and black sands, and even a school kid can pan out lots of flakes and specks on every try.

In 2005, Golconda Resources and Sheer Minerals of Canada spent $1 million on a joint drilling exploration for diamonds seven miles north of this site. Seventeen microdiamonds were found in the core samples. Subsequently, the people who initiated the search have maintained the mining claims where the discoveries were made and exploration is ongoing. What’s most important, though, is Riversong sits in Lake Creek Canyon at the same depth where the microdiamonds were found. Despite being a big long shot, this still provides an opportunity for finding something even more valuable than gold.

The mine comes complete with two storage sheds, a low-time Montana 2434 tractor with frontend loader and backhoe, a 1990 Jeep Wrangler in Anchorage, a Honda three-wheeler, a two-inch Keene dredge, a 25” Keene spiral gold wheel, a Keene portable sluice, two generators, a three-inch trash pump, four steel sluice boxes, extra miner’s moss, an electric welder, an air compressor, two chainsaws, a bear rifle, an Iridium 955 satellite phone, power and hand tools too numerous to list, nuts, bolts, and nails beyond description, enough fuel for a season of mining and prospecting, and an assortment of gold cleanup tools. Everything is in good or new-like condition and cost way more than $100,000 to buy and move onto the mine site. A buyer needs only to bring food and work clothes, everything else is provided. There’s even a hillside spring for running water.


Riversong is probably best suited for mining alluvial deposits that can be bagged and sold as real Alaskan pay dirt. This would also eliminate the need for costly jigs and shaker plants that are necessary for recovering fine gold. —But what’s most important, this gets rid of the high cost of workers and heavy equipment, which always bankrupt Alaska gold mining deals. One or two people can easily operate this mine with little expense, yet produce hundreds of one-pound bags of pay dirt worth $25 to $100 each on a retail website and in storefront shops. What’s more, there are countless birch trees nearby with chaga mushrooms that are selling as America’s hottest new cancer-killing herb.

Where else can you catch 20-inch rainbows and 30-pound king salmon after a hard day’s work and have bald eagles watching you from across the river? And why would you ever buy a cabin when you can spend your summers here, especially when it costs less than $200 a year to maintain the ultimate tax-free, off-grid, survival property, especially now with gold going up bigtime? It doesn’t get any better than this if you’re looking for an affordable mine. Priced at $99,000, and I might take $25,000 down and payments or a yearly lease with a damage deposit if you have good credit. riversong.gold@gmail.com - 480-275-9474

Claims Wanted - Added 1/28/2018. State of Alaska placer mining claim or claims, (including dredging claims). Retiring after 30 years and looking to move on to another adventure. Not looking for recreational claims, but proven small (2or3 person) claims. In actuality it will probably be just my girlfriend and her dog mining! Ideally looking for a claim with atv trail accessibility, but as good as the next guy with my Super Cub so a remote claim could be a option as well. The areas I have been mostly looking at are between roughly Petersville and Chicken, but the Nome/Fairbanks area could also be considered. A claim with equipment in place, that is in decent condition would be a plus. Willing to pay owner for a week or two of their time to get familiarized with the claim. I am by no means a experienced placer miner, but have done a fair amount of research on the DNR site as well as other mining sites. I am a lifelong Alaskan that is fairly mechanically inclined and is not afraid of bears and mosquitoes. I consider myself much more like Freddy Dodge than Parker and Tony! If anyone thinks they have something that fits the bill, then they are more than welcome to drop me a e-mail with some information about their claims and their contact info, lunch will be on me and maybe we can make a deal. Contact Ken at 

Valdez Creek / Grogg Creek - Added 1/21/2018. Selling 720 acres / 18 claims (40-acre claims) of state of Alaska placer mining claims. Along the east bank of the Susitna River, the claims are located on Valdez Creek. Creek is a historic gold bearing location and a leading producer. All the claims are state of Alaska claims, they are not patented. In the 80’s Valdez Creek (Cambior) became the largest placer gold operation in North America for about 10 years and in the best year it produced over 100,000 ounces of raw gold. The claims are about 212 miles from Anchorage at the confluence of Grogg Creek and Valdez Creek, in the Talkeetna Mining District. The area is reached by vehicles via the Denali Highway which connects Paxson on the east with Cantwell on the west. At about Mile 79 (measured from Cantwell) a gravel road heads north along the east bank Susitna River and goes through the old mining camp of Denali and up in back of White Creek and on the confluence of Valdez Creek and Grogg Creek. 4 miles up from Cambior Mine. You can drive to the claims with a 4x4 or 4-wheeler in the summer.


These claims have huge potential. No mining equipment on site. Placer gold exploration permits. Great area for hunting caribou, sheep, wolf and fox. (Mile 69 Denali Hwy) At $450/oz. gold samples assay up to $15.00 a yard. (Reference sample, 1885, Mike Balen / Jerry Hannio U.S. Bureau of Mines). Excellent ore values. 0.0369 fine ounces per cubic yard of fine grained and flakey gold. Ft Knox ADL No. 539731 Downstream Cambior company’s, A channel, was a 15-foot-thick pay stream that ran 10 ounces per cubic yard. Asking $200,000 - the claims will not be sold separately. Contact Peter if interested or with questions. Email: indigoenterprises@gmail.com  Call: 206-501-6379

Porcupine Creek - Updated 1/16/2018. Thirteen 160 acre STATE OF ALASKA GOLD MINING CLAIMS available (one claim or more) for lease, sale, or, negotiable agreement for the coming mining season with option to buy at terms we both agreed to accept; for recreational mining see more below. If you are interested in buying a claim we will allow small scale testing for a limited time before a purchase decision is made. Contact me if you want to do drilling or testing with equipment. The claims are contiguous to a mining operation on a claim to the North, which is also a 160 acre state claim, owned by someone else. There is a Right-of-Way, a good trail, from the highway to the claims which start at about 1 mile. The Trail is good for a 4x4 ATV or equipment. At times a 4x4 pickup might get to the claims. The parties who own the claim to the North took in a D-8, a Case 450, water pumps and a 100 ton per hour wash plant using The Trail which is the Old Eagle Trail near Slana Alaska.



The claims are on Porcupine Creek which crosses the Tok Cutoff HWY which is HWY 1 in Alaska. It drains into the Slana River and into the Copper River, a large gold producing area, with Salmon and many other fish. There are not any Salmon in Porcupine Creek and permits are not an issue. In fact we have one for dredging, trenching and drilling so we may be able to work with our permits depending on your plans. The claims are along the creek and continue up the benches to top of mountains.
Anyone who only wants to do prospecting or small scale mining is also welcome to do that on a weekly basis which we could extend all summer. The trail head starts at the Old Tok Cutoff Highway which is where you can park your vehicle then it is about 1 mile to the first of our claims and the Porcupine Creek claims start about 4 miles from the highway. If you prefer you may park your vehicle, a camper, RV or Bus at our privately owned property about one mile from the trail head; we do not have any hookups. April to Sept.: (907) 822-GOLD (4653) OR Cell: (520) 709-0601 OR mact@gmapa.com 

Valdez Creek - Added 1/10/2018. I am selling out all of my claims. I have around 1500 acres on and near famous Valdez Creek. All of my claims are state of Alaska claims. They are not patented. They all have good gold on them and almost all of them are on a creek. I have numerous 40 acre claims that would be great for dredging. Those claims start at $6,000 each. I also have some commercial claims, including 120 acres on Valdez Creek itself. Other commercial claims include 600 acres on Gold Creek which is near Valdez Creek. Theses claims are virgin ground on the creek with shallow bedrock that is fractured slate. The slate has trapped the gold and there is gold in the gravels. A large mining corporation has the lode claims above my placer claims. This area has huge potential. I am willing to finance the commercial claims if needed. Email me at alaskarangemining@hotmail.com with any questions or for more information. Any serious buyers are very welcome to come out and test any of the grounds they are interested in buying.

Claims were recorded in early 1920's with only a single corporation. These are placer and hard rock claims. Aging stockholders wish to sell. Contact Patrice Gapen at 307-631-0601 in Mountain Time or emailflypatr@yahoo.com

Babe & Vault Creek - Added 3/7/2017. For Lease. We have 440 acres containing almost 2 miles of virgin permafrost placer ground for lease 13 miles N. of Fairbanks. Babe and upper Vault Creek drain a gold rich belt that extends from Ester Dome NE to the Ft. Knox mine. Lower Vault Creek was extensively drift mined in the early 1900’s and was a major producer. One small drift operation was located on Babe Ck. but no production records have been found. There are several old prospect shafts on both creeks that indicate gold values at a MINIMUM of 1oz/30 yds of gravel. One such shaft was cleaned out and taken to bed rock which was at roughly 65’. I recently put down a 6’x6’ shaft and hit bed rock at 60’. Pay gravel is approximately 10’ in thickness. This mining season I’ll be cross drifting the valley to better determine the values to expect both up and downstream. Any operation undertaking the mining of these claims needs to not be deterred by significant overburden which varies from at least 30’ to 70’. An extensive drilling program would be needed. The history of lower Vault shows 1/3 of the gold recovered was 1 penny weight or better. There is good indication that the width of the pay could easily be 150’ to 200’ with the richest pay streaks being around 50’. The two creeks combined typically run enough water to supply a washing operation especially if ponded. There is a large spring that adds significantly to the water available. Contact: Kurt Blumberg e-mail: flintgd@aol.com or phone: 303-507-9502 for additional information.

Ruby-Poorman - Added 1/28/17. Great Alaska Mining Company, LLC Turnkey Gold Mine for Sale. It is located in the Ruby District, 40 Miles south of the Village of Ruby, Alaska. Ten claims 520 acres on the Ruby/Poorman Road with equipment & living quarters. Mine can be run by 5 people and is in operation now, all licenses in place. The Greenstone Creek Gold mine is a rare find. The mine is in operation now and comes complete with living quarters and equipment. Access is by Ruby Poorman road for 39 miles the road is State, the final mile is maintained by the miner.


The overlying material is glacial till, with two to four feet of organics, ten to twelve feet of gold bearing gravel. Most of the gold is found in the gravel at the bedrock. The owners hold 10 claims 520 acres total. The size of each claim is 40 acres with one being 160 acres. Experience shows the ground has been rich in these claim sites where there is a confluence of streams. The old timers had mined part of this area but were inefficient and the existing tailings have proved to be quite mineable. One claim has approximately 5 acres that was mined in the past the rest of the claims are unmined. $750,000 USD. Interested buyers will be provided with details and photos of mine and equipment. Please inquire at email charlafferty@hotmail.com or Mharum3@outlook.com

Falls Creek - Added 1/21/17. I have three claims for sale in the Cache Creek Basin (Dutch Hills). They are on upper Falls Creek. I have held them since the late nineties. I am getting a little long in the tooth now and hope someone will be interested! The asking price is $12,500 for one, $10,000 each for two ($20,000 for two) and a great deal, $9000 each for three ($27,000 for three). Please e-mail me with questions / or interest Niallix@aol.com with the word CLAIM in the subject line.

Near Fairbanks - Added 1/10/17. Claims are located in the Tanana Quadrangle, 4 North, 13 West Fairbanks Meridian, 440 acres on Boston Creek, 40 acres on Rabbit Gulch, around 100 on Eureka Creek, 40 acres on Moose Mary, more than 200 acres on Glenn Creek. Small disputes with neighboring miners on land; only because of over staking land. It is not a concern, because if you do any research at all, over staking is illegal; people are just trying to take land without having to buy it. Glenn Creek runs along side of Shirley Bar and both have rich history as do Eureka and Boston.


I am a 74 year old woman with another 84 acres of land in the arctic circle, which leaves me without much time on my hands. So, I'm selling instead of working them; it takes a lot of resources and time to mine. Also included in the sale are a loader and Ross box. The price is placed at $300,000. The claims will not be sold separately. The claims are not patented but state leased, which shows in the price. If you are interested, I can be contacted at Arcticathleticsassociation@gmail.com

Alaskan State claims for sale on Seward Peninsula, approximately 100 North of Nome. 8.5 miles of Kougarok river claims. 3 affordable groups (10 to 14 claims per group) with some very interesting bench claims available as a bonus if interested. We've prospected these claims over the last 6 seasons using a suction dredge w/ several paystreaks located (98% virgin to suction dredging). Several cabins on the downstream group (2 miles from end of road), remote (2 to 14 miles from end of road), ATV, cat trail access.


We found quite a bit of coarse gold up to 7 oz nugget. Upper group has a paystreak of finer gold that extends at least a couple of miles (we haven't fully determined just how far this extends but have got as high as 2ozs/6 hr dredging session). There is an old cabin that could be fixed up or moved closer to the claims of the upper group. Middle group is the least prospected but we have found nuggets at the bottom of a rapids and the bench at the terrific camp site carries colors and heavies (looks to me like an ancient channel). The bottom group has a nugget paystreak that probably extends 300' or more (we've established the upper end, then 200' down is where we found the 7oz nugget and at that time we covered the downstream ground with tailings so we know that the paystreak extends downstream, possibly for several hundred yards. All the claims are Alaskan State claims which means less problems... no BLM. Asking 95K (bottom), 70K (middle) and 80K(upper) respectively...roughly 7.5K/claim (which is a very good deal for I see several 40 acre claims in the general area for 40K or more per claim). I can't over emphasis the fact that we've prospected up there for the last 6 seasons...we know where we didn't hit any gold...we know where we hit some gold but not enough to pay with our 6" dredge... we know where there are existing paystreaks.... we know hidden trails for access.... and can give advice as to camping ect ... all this information is very valuable and should be taken into consideration. (most of the claims I see advertised don't have much positive information available). Age forces sale but we hope to sell only one or two of these groups so, God willing, we’ll be up there again next season.
