Find Gold at Faith Creek Camp, AK

Good morning everyone. I was able to add another Gold site in Alaska over the weekend. Faith Creek Camp, out of Faibanks AK, lets you pan, dredge, metal dectect for nuggets, or high bank on their property. Everything you find is yours. They have limited cabins and equipment for rental, so call first.

    When we staked Faith Creek , it was totally located North of the Steese Highway. It butted up against a Patented land grant to the South which was established in 1929 (if my memory holds). The corner pin was located for the 1929 patented land which was on the bluff just West and North of the bridge over Faith Creek. You could take a back azimuth sighting and see the old cleared property line. The miner up stream never found the corner pin and staked on what he thought was the property line, but missed it by about 20 acres. The 20 acres was still “open” land. The ’96 Application we filed was F965940, for Claim # 512290, “TJJA No. 1.”
    I sold it to Clarence Douchett and (as I understand it) he had secured the patented 1929 land also.
    Lee, would be interested in chatting with you, Jim

    Hi,
    I originally staked the Faith Creek claim just off the Steese Highway in 1982, with my friend John. Sold it around 2001 or 2002, as I had moved out of state Too little reserves to have heavy equipment but decent color was in every pan of concentrates from a small hand sluice. About $14 per yard just below the surface. Never made to bed rock. The miner just upstream declared (with the state) 900 oz for a mid-80 season. The fellow I sold it to built some cabins and started Faith Creek Camp. The last time I was there was around 2004 or 5.

    I’m one of the owner at Faith Creek Mine. I’m very sorry that the miners you talked with were not very friendly. I do ask them to be. If you stop by and ask for Lee Woods, I promise you that I will be.

      Hello Lee,

      Is Faith Creek Mine still open for pay to prospect? If you are, do you have a website I can point people to?

      Thanks,

      Good luck!
