At El Dorado Gold Mine, you'll ride a replica of the Tanana Valley Railroad through
the original gold fields of Interior Alaska. Your journey takes you through a permafrost
tunnel where a miner with a head lamp and pick-axe gives a thorough explanation of
underground mining in days gone by. While inside the tunnel, you'll see the kinds
of mineral and rock formations that tend to produce the most gold. You'll also have
the opportunity to view prehistoric bones up to 30,000 years old. This part of the
tour is only one of the reasons that NBC Nightly News featured El Dorado Gold Mine on its national news program.
