All this week Channel 2 has shown you places across Alaska where gold fever has hit, but one of the places it has also struck is only a 40-minute drive from Anchorage.
Managers at the Crow Creek Mine in Girdwood say they've seen an uptick in the number of tourists and Alaskans stopping by over the last few months, as the price of gold climbs worldwide.
On an average summer day, you can find between 40 and 50 people at the mine, looking for gold.
The mine attracts several tourists. On Friday, families from both Oklahoma and Wisconsin were there.
"There's a lot of people coming up from the Lower 48 who are going to find their fortune from gold and some don't," said Andy King, a Crow Creek Mine employee who was helping families pan for gold.
On a good day, Crow Creek employees say you can come away with $50 worth of gold.
