The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Mining Extension program offers a series of workshops developed to provide recreational and artisanal miners an opportunity to increase their skills and knowledge of proper prospecting techniques for Alaska.
The workshops are designed to prepare participants for conducting basic research and fieldwork needed to locate, identify, access and stake mineral claims.
Instruction in basic mineral identification, economic and mining methods and how to research land status all provide a basis for more serious prospecting.
