Goldrush To Alaska Site
Alaska Alert

Chicken is a community founded on gold mining and is one of the few surviving gold rush towns in Alaska. Gold was discovered in the Chicken area at Franklin on the 40-Mile River in 1886 and on Chicken Creek in 1894, prior to the famous Klondike gold rush. At the present time there are still several active gold mines in the Chicken vicinity. The gold taken from this area comes from cat mining, suction, dredging, and for the tourist there is gold panning in pay dirt direct from mining operations.
