Alaska Gold Infographic with scientific properties, uses, and production in Alaska

Gold is Alaska’s most seductive metal, but it’s also critical to products aimed at creating a renewable future. Since the 1896 Klondike Gold Rush, miners have been drawn to Alaska in hopes of striking it rich. Not only is gold a precious metal found in luxury items and used for investment, but it is also important in electrical components because of its many amazing properties. It is very malleable and ductile, conducts heat and electricity, and is non-corrosive and non-magnetic.  

Gold is one of the major metals found and mined in Alaska, with over 700,000 troy ounces mined worth over $800 million in 2018 alone. 

As of 2018, Alaska has 3% of the world’s gold reserves. (DGGS
