Ganes Creek has produced over
250,000 ounces of gold... and much of the gold has been some of the
largest nuggets ever found in Alaska. Thousands of acres of tailing
piles contain nuggets lost by bucketline dredges and inefficient
bulldozer operations of the past. Nuggets have been found here by
simply walking along and picking them up. Ganes Creek had a
"pay-to-mine" operation that shut down after the 2012 season. In the
11 years it operation over 2000 ounces of gold were found with metal
detectors by visitors and crew.
