ⓘ Juneau gold belt

The Juneau gold belt is located in the southeastern portion of the U.S. state of Alaska. This belt is approximately 100 miles in length, north/northwest-trending, and extends from Berners Bay southeastward to Windham Bay, 60 miles southeast of Juneau, and includes Douglas Island. The belt contains over 200 gold-quartz-vein deposits with production nearing 7.000.000 ounces of gold. More than three-quarters of Alaskas lode gold was mined from the Juneau gold belt.
