The Juneau Gold Belt is a comprehensive record of the fascinating mining history of the areas in and around Juneau, Alaska.  From the A.J. to the Treadwell and the lesser-known areas in between, Earl Redman paints a detailed picture of mining life, expectations, disappointments, and tells the stories of the miners who lived it.

In 1984, Earl Redman took a job with the U.S. Bureau of Mines for the study of the mines and mineral deposits of the Juneau Mining District.  For the next four years, he spent his time crawling in and out of every overgrown, mud-and-water-infested hole in the ground he could find. His tireless exploration and countless hours of research on the hundreds of old mine workings is reflected in this important contribution to the historical record of Juneau, Alaska.
