Julian Creek Gold Mine
The Julian Creek Gold Mine is in Yukon-Koyukuk, Alaska. Historically the site has been part of the Aniak Mining District. The Julian Creek Gold Mine was closed at the time of data entry with no known plans to re-open. The ore mined is composed of gold, monazite and cinnabar. The mineralization at this location is from the Neogene period (23.03 to 2.58 million years ago) to the Quaternary period (2.58 million years ago to present).

1 World-class significance is determined by total endowment of the contained commodity. This includes all past production and remaining reserves. Each commodity is considered separately and commodities cannot be combined to arrive at a significant size. The tonnage thresholds are from the mine model grade-tonnage studies. As of June 2008, many entries were classified as significant under less strict rules.

Understanding Claim Ownership
We receive lots of emails from people who find their name or a relative’s name on our site and want to know if this means they have some right to the land listed under that name.
Understanding BLM Administrative Areas
Whether it is filing a mine or researching one, the administering BLM office is going to be the definitive source.
Understanding Location Data
Mine handled by the Bureau of Land Management are not mapped by latitude and longitude, instead, these mines harken back to the Public Land Survey System.
A “township” can refer to two different things. Both are part of the PLSS measurement system but have different uses.
