Stare up at a gravel-eating 8-storey monster dredge covering two-thirds of a football field. Its giant iron buckets chomped into rocky creek beds, spitting out miles of gravel trailings that snake across the Klondike goldfields. Join a guided tour to see the inner workings of the biggest dredge of its kind in North America, a historic reminder of the amazing inventions and adaptations needed for mechanized mining in permafrost.
Guided tours of Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site are provided by licensed private operators. You can also learn about the dredge using the site guide, the Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the three Geocaches in the Klondike Goldfields.
