Come onboard one of only a few rescued dredges from the famous Gold Rush era!
The history of placer gold mining in the Yukon is not complete without seeing a dredge that continued to operate until the late 1950s. Your guide will give you a tour on this 350-ton pontoon boat where you will see the inner workings of this engineering achievement.
Each part of the dredge is clearly elucidated, and you will leave understanding just what a simple yet clever engineering feat it was to use them. In addition, there are many pictures of the history of this time period as well as a film about how the dredge came to sit here in Dredge Town.
Immerse yourself in the history of the Gold Rush!
