El Dorado Gold Mine Tour PM

El Dorado Gold Mine Tour PM

Go for the gold! Join the Binkley family for a trip through Alaska's gold mining history at the El Dorado Gold Mine. Ride the Tanana Valley Railroad for an adventure into the gold fields of the Interior. A two-hour guided tour takes you through a permafrost tunnel where Alaska's mining history comes alive. Enjoy a walking tour of the mining camp, then meet and talk with Alaska miners as you learn about present-day prospecting methods. After a short course in gold mining, grab your own 'poke' filled with pay dirt right out of the sluice box and try your hand at panning for gold. Everyone finds gold, it's guaranteed! El Dorado Gold Mine is an exciting hands-on adventure for the whole family. Complimentary coffee and fresh homemade cookies available.

Please note this tour is now operated with a new location and format as Gold Dredge Number 8. See links for this new tour on the right side bar under related pages.

What To Wear

Due to unpredictable Alaskan weather, we advise dressing in layers, which will allow you to stay warm and dry as the outdoor environment changes. For this event, please also bring comfortable walking shoes and a jacket that can shield you from light wind or rain.
