With wacky machines like this one you too can Pan for Gold in Nome Alaska!
With today’s gold prices, more people have their sights on Nome, Alaska for their next big gold mining adventure. Though Nome is one of the most remote communities in Alaska, this is not the Old West that it used to be. Most of the land around Nome’s road-system is owned by corporations, private land holders or the State of Alaska. As a general rule, most of the federal lands outside of Nome are not accessible by automobile.
The Nome Convention & Visitors Bureau does not maintain land ownership records; however, below you will find contact information for both the State and Federal agencies that may be able to assist you with questions concerning mining on State and Federal lands.
