What To Expect
Your adventure at Gold Dredge 8 begins with a ride on a replica of the Tanana Valley Railroad through the gold fields of Interior Alaska. Before you board the train, enjoy a close-up view of the TransAlaska pipeline and informational displays about the pipeline. Once aboard, the train conductor and commentators will provide lively narration on the history of mining in Alaska.
The train ride takes you to the dredge where you will see first hand how the dredge worked the gold fields. Once the train arrives at the camp, you will receive a brief but informative course in mining, and then you will try panning for yourself! You will find gold - we guarantee it! After you find your gold, explore the dredge and feel the history come alive.
