Augie Krutzsch of Akau Gold  mined in  Alaska for approximately 20 years under the name of Krutzsch Mining.   His passion is to provide a rare opportunity during our modern era so visitors may appreciate both the beauty of  the Alaskan landscape and  tundra, to enjoy the environment and give guests a glimpse into a historic time of American history.   Through decades of extreme Alaskan climate the remnants of the early gold rush days are still present.   Whether you are visiting to  prospect for gold, take advantage of  the world class fishing grounds, ecology touring, hiking or relaxing, Akau Gold and Resort is determined to accommodate guests and provide a once in a life time experience.  We look forward to meeting you.

Akau is located next to Anvil Creek Alaska.  Anvil Creek is the site of gold discovered in the summer of 1898, by Alaska gold prospectors named the ”Three Lucky Swedes”:  Norwegian-American Jafet Lindeberg, and two naturalized American citizens of Swedish birth, Erik Lindblom and John Brynteson.  The discovery of gold in 1898 led to the development of the Nome Mining District.  Over 3 million ounces of gold have been recovered from the Nome Mining District since the 1898 gold discovery.     The topography of the area consists mainly of Alaskan tundra where tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and short growing seasons.  The optimal months for visitors begins June 1st through Labor Day Weekend in September.   Temperatures peak in mid/late July, with a July average of 52.6 °F (11.4 °C).  Daytime temperatures average below freezing starting in mid-October.
