This report describes Bureau of Mines fieldwork that revealed the locations of numerous adits, shafts, and other old mine workings, many of which were previously unreported or misplotted on existing published maps of the Juneau gold belt portion of the Juneau Mining District, an area which has produced $157,000,000 worth of gold, silver, and lead since 1880. The Bureau examined approximately 85 mines, prospects, and occurrences during this study, interviewed local prospectors, claim owners, and geologists, and conducted an extensive literature search that included reports by the U.S. Geological Survey, the State of Alaska, and the Bureau of Mines, as well as unpublished private company reports.
