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: or phone: 303-507-9502 for additional information.

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.

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 or

Porcupine Creek - Updated 1/21/17. State of Alaska Gold Mining Claims available for lease, sale, or, negotiable agreement for the 2017 mining season with option to buy at terms we agreed to accept. THE CLAIMS are contiguous to a MINING OPERATION ON THE CLAIM to the North, a160 ACRE CLAIM. THERE IS A RIGHT-OF-WAY - GOOD TRAIL - WHICH IS ABOUT 4 MILES FROM THE MAIN HIGHWAY - GOOD FOR ATV, 4X4, OR EQUIPMENT. The parties who own the claim to the North took in a D8, Case 450, water pumps and 100+ ton per hour wash plant.

I have several State of Alaska mining claims that have never been mined located in a proven belt of valuable metals. Our claims are within thirty miles, as the crow flies, from the Nabesna Gold Mine that was discovered back in the early 1900's and also within the same belt of precious metals plus according to the book "Nabesna Gold" a quartz vein containing up to 256 ounces of gold per ton was discovered. In addition, our claims are within fifty miles of Slate Creek and Miller Gulch which produced about 180,000 ounces of gold. Our Claims are located in the middle between the Nabesna Mine and Slate Creek and they all are located in the yellow oval in the second photo. Corvus Gold produced and published this photo and they owned claims in the area and have done a lot of exploration on their claims however in early 2016 they sold them to Millrock who plan to do testing and groundwork on the claims in 2017.

I am looking for a few prospectors who are interested in living their Prospectors Dream. We will not pay any wages and we will not supply your tools or grub or supplies or tent or anything else but when you make a valuable discovery we are willing to offer a share of what we get for the discovery that you have made or whenever it is developed and producing with a written agreement or perhaps an agreement for you to mine on one claim which we can discuss. This offer is for someone who wants to explore, test and prospect for potentially good mining areas with the idea that it or they could be mined in the future, or, we could write an agreement to mine the claim. We are also open to discussing a possible partnership, or, selling one 160 acre claim or trading it for something we need like an excavator delivered to Alaska with agreeable conditions. Another option could be that we write an agreement for you to actually do gold mining on one of the claims or an agreement for drilling, trenching or larger scale testing. Everything will be in writing which eliminates confusion and misunderstandings. Are you available to live your dream during the summer in Alaska in 2017? If you send an email give me some information about your plans and your name and phone number! Contact me at or call my cell phone (520) 709-0601

mining claims for sale

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 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

Lake Creek - Updated 1/7/17. 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 schoolkid can pan out a dozen flakes and specks on every try.

riversong claims

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 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, plenty of 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 more than $100,000 to buy and move into 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 gold

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 or in storefront shops. What’s more, there are innumerable 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 survival property? It doesn’t get any better.

Priced at $119,000, and I might take $25,000 down and payments from someone with good credit. - 480-275-9474

Fortymile River - Added 12/5/16. ADL 704652 and 704653 Rainbow #5 and #6 are river bottom gold claims for sale at $3000.00 each. Want to sell together. Only 2-1/2 miles below south fork bridge. Accessible by 4/wheeler or boat. Gold average size is 20 mesh with a couple of pickers each day. Average 3 grams of gold per hour with a 8" dredge.

Kougarok River - Added 11/12/16. 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.

kougarok nome

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.

Nome Area Claims - Added 8/7/15. I have several claims to the West of Nome in an area with very little overburden and near a fault line. They were formerly listed for $40,000 each but since I'm in the middle of a project that needs funding, I'd be willing to let a few of these go for $20,000 each. I also have several on Sledge Island which were formerly listed for $80,000 each. I'd sell one or two of these go for $40,000 apiece. I've got 9 claims more that I recently acquired located to the East of Nome near the entrance to Safety Sound. I'll let these go for $5,000 apiece. That's not a typo, 5K apiece. There are several reports and surveys available on the internet that attest to the richness of the gold deposits offshore Nome. It is the richest known marine placer gold deposit on the planet. There is one report in particular that documents the deposits around Sledge Island (Google "Sledge Island gold." Other key words would be USGS survey Nome gold, offshore gold nome, etc.)

Nome Mining Claims For Sale

 There have been hundreds of thousands, if not millions of ounces of gold taken from the Nome mining district, 95% of to came from the land and less than 5% from offshore. A lot of people, including me, believe there is as much or more gold on the bottom of the sea offshore Nome than there was on the land. It was pushed from the mountains and valleys out into the sea by the ancient glaciers, rivers and streams. It has been virtually untouched compared to the land deposits because it's been only recently that technology has evolved to the point where it could be economically recovered.

These are all 40 acre tidewater claims which start at the water's edge, extend a quarter of a mile (1320 feet) along the beach and then a quarter of a mile into the ocean. Recent changes to the regulations make it a lot more difficult to get authorization to work on somebody else's claim or lease. By owning one of these claims you would be eligible to get your own permit, dredge on your own ground and not have to pay a royalty (typically 20%) to a claim or lease owner. Vernon Adkison, Wild Ranger Gold Company, Nome, Alaska 907-399-1176

Isabel Pass - Added 8/7/15. Isabel Pass, +8,000 acres (53 State mining claims), 68 miles south of Delta Junction, Alaska. The paved Richardson Highway crosses the property. Excellent access from the highway to the gold-bearing gravel. There are four drainages involved in the claim package: Phelan Creek, upper Gulkana River, lower College Creek and lower Gunn Creek. Gold and platinum have been determined in the heavy mineral fraction of the placer. None of the ground has been drilled, but numerous surface samples have been obtained with gold grades of 0.16 to 0.155 ounces per cubic yard from the heavy mineral fraction in surface samples. Gold occurs as fine grained visible gold and in sulfides; platinum is in the sulfide fraction of the placer concentrate. Gold occurs at the surface, with no muck or overburden.

Isabel Pass
Oblique view of the Isabel Pass claims showing Phelan Creek and upper Gulkana River drainages.

This is a hybrid placer gold deposit. Conventional free gold occurs, and gold-platinum in sulfides, with a magnetite (iron) by-product. Successful mining will require large-scale jigs, spirals or bowls to recover the heavy minerals in a concentrate, then, the concentrate will be processed for gold, gold-platinum sulfides, and iron products. More than one billion cubic yards are conservatively estimated. Drilling is needed to determine the thickness and distribution of precious metals with depth. Exploration permits have been received from Alaska DNR for 2015 and 2016 exploration activities, including drilling and two small bulk sample test sites. A report is available on request. Terms are negotiable, outright sale $4,500,000, or sale with royalty, lease with royalty, lease with option to buy, or joint venture. For more information call 520-465-8650 or 928-445-1914, or e-mail:

Alfred Creek - Updated 7/10/15. PRICE REDUCED. Two 40 acre State mining claims in the Willow Creek District approximately 120 mile northeast of Anchorage on Alfred Creek. Assessment work good until Sept 2015. Both claims accessible by rough 4WD dirt road from the Glenn Highway and are approximately 4 miles downstream of a 1200 foot dirt landing strip on Alfred Creek. Gold was discovered on Alfred Creek in 1911 and small scale mining has continued ever since. A small amount of platinum if found with the gold.  "Placer gold found along length of stream. Lower part of the stream course cuts through Cretaceous shale, while upstream it cuts through Jurassic sandstone and shale. The Jurassic sandstone and shale is cut by small dikes. Ridge north of creek capped by Tertiary volcanic rocks that may be underlain by conglomerate, which could be source of placer gold in the creek" (Martin and Mertie, 1914). Claims are $5000 each or $9,000 for both. Call John at 907-694-2497 or 907-830-2737
