  1. Chicken has some pay to mine that is fair ground right in chicken once there you might be able to talk to miners and find some ground petersville has a rec area the road into there is not so good if its wet north of Fairbanks is real remote with frozen ground most places around mile 57 of the steese highway there is open ground right along the road I've talked to people that have dredged there and done fairly well at mile 67 there is a abandoned state gravel pit area its like 200 acres people do pretty good there its open to the public its along the river just remember that Alaska is big things are far away with few people from Fairbanks north bound when you leave fox at mile 10 of the steese highway the next gas is at central mile 132 up the haul road north bound from fox the next gas is at the yukon river bridge about 200 miles

  3. Our bed rock is garnet schist its like a clay the gold does not go into it we take about a foot of it we have run tests with only bed rock there is nothing in it lower on the creek they have a quartzite bed rock there's is real blocky they take about 8 feet of it to get most of the gold we have a real mineralized layer that is real hot when we find it when we do a cross cut we see old old creek channels in the cut the old channels are gold free meaning the gold was put in before the old channels came into play we have found a few old fossilized bones but no tusks yet that would be a real trophy hoping that it melts the snow and ice soon I'm so ready to get up there we are almost to eagle summit take care doug
  4. lets all hope for a good season with good gold prices and lower fuel prices
  5. We have from 1 foot to 4 feet of muck then we hit gravel top of gravel to bed rock is about 8 feet some times more hardly any big rock in the gravel . The big rock has been pushed up to the top due to the frost with the freeze thaw most of our gravel is thawed if we strip off the muck in the fall the blue berry bushes will have solid ice under them I don't even know how they can grow we always hit flowing water when we get close to bed rock
