GOLDBOTTOM MINE TOURS
In 2021 we’re providing 1 tour daily beginning Mid-May until freeze-up, usually first weekend of September (tour times are below). We operate in all weather conditions, very rarely do we close because of weather (i.e. rain), if you’ve made the trip, we’ll still make it worthwhile.
To see our gold mining operation requires a trip into the traditional goldfields of the Klondike, our staging area is at the former town site of Goldbottom, a once thriving, sociable community that boasted a population of close to 5000 people during the hey-days of the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush.
We provide escorted tours of our family’s authentic gold mining operation on Goldbottom or Hunker Creek in the Heart of the Klondike! We give explanations and demonstrations of historic and modern placer gold mining methods and processes, everything from staking a claim to selling the gold. We share personal experiences and stories about life on the creeks. The Millar Family and our Goldbottom Crew has over thirty years gold mining experiences to share.
PLEASE NOTE: The tour is mostly conducted outside, above ground and guests should dress appropriately for the weather. Sturdy footwear is recommended as standing and walking on rough gravel will be required. Bring dry clothes for the kids, and you may wish to bring insect repellent. Kids and pets are welcome!
