Gold Dredge 8

1803 Old Steese Hwy N., Fairbanks, Alaska 99712 USA

“A close up view of the Trans Alaskan pipeline”

Enjoy a close up view of the Trans Alaska Pipeline and a presentation about it’s construction and operation.  Then take a seat aboard a replica of the narrow-gauge Tanana Valley Railroad and hear the conductor tell tales of prospectors who arrived by the thousands during the gold rush.  The train ride takes you to Gold Dredge 8 where you will see first-hand how the dredge worked the gold fields, then receive a brief but informative course on gold panning.  Once the train arrives at the camp, you will try panning for yourself!  You will find gold- we guarantee it! Finally, explore the dredge camp and enjoy complimentary coffee and freshly baked cookies in the gift shop as your gold is weighed, then hop aboard the train and return to the station.

Great all round experience. Informative train tour, panning for gold, (you will find some) and the dredge is a mechanical marvel. And the Alaskan Pipeline passes right by the entrance.
