Located within one hundred miles of Anchorage, Alaska, yet still in the remote Alaskan wilderness, you will find McWilliams Gold Claim. It is a historic gold mining area located in the heart of the Talkeetna Mountains. This offering, ''McWilliams Gold Creek, '' consists of 881.96+ acres within the patented mineral rights. The property lies on both sides of Chunilna Creek and John's Creek, with approximately 7.5 miles of creek frontage. The property includes forty 20+ acre parcels with an additional 80+ acre parcel (US Survey 6070). It covers an area of about two square miles at an elevation ranging approximately 1, 000 to 2, 300 feet above sea level. The property is located in a large pristine watershed from the surrounding mountain plateau of roughly 1, 000 square kilometers with virtually no other private land ownership, offering breathtaking views of Denali on your doorstep. Multiple freshwater springs add to the beauty of the landscape. In addition to the mining aspect, the sight offers breathtaking views of Denali and old-growth forest, which has the characteristics of a rain forest; the dense vegetation consists of cottonwood, white and black spruce, birch, willow, berry bushes, ferns, grass, fireweed, and a variety of wildflowers. With no signs or history of wildfires in this area, wildlife is abundant with big game species like moose, caribou, grizzly and black bear. McWilliams Gold Claim offers a unique experience for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and invest in a gold claim in Alaska's wilderness, offering endless outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking and camping. Access to the area is available via bush planes from Anchorage or Talkeetna. Heavy equipment can be moved to the site using a trail from the Gold Creek siding of the Alaska Railway to the property. Of the 40 claims, twenty-one of them are believed to be virgin ground. The H.F. McWilliams report estimates that 16, 930 cubic yards of gravel have been mined from these claims, with a recovery of 2, 386.45 milligrams of gold per cubic yard of gravel mined, 7.5 times more than Bureau of Land Management (BLM) values. Baes on the historical data, estimates vary from $160 million to $600 million in gold reserves still in the ground.
