Hope Mining Company (HMC) is available for purchase. Many mining operations are available for purchase across Alaska,
but key differentiators make this purchase option particularly attractive.
Hope Mining Company is located on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula – 14 air miles and 89 road miles from Alaska’s biggest
city – Anchorage – on a road system that directly connects the small, historic community of Hope with Alaska’s largest
transportation hub. A 2,000-foot Alaska State maintained gravel runway exists approximately two miles from the main
operation along Resurrection Creek. The Mine qualifies for inclusion on the National Historical Register, and has a 20-year
Based on Hope Mining Company’s November 2010 Mineral Report, a combination of actual mining, the work of geologists
and geophysicists, and extensive magnetometer testing indicate 61,468 ounces of available gold for mining in just the
Resurrection Creek drainage mining claims.
The fourteen mile Palmer Creek road allows access to the claims in that area including two hard-rock mines with adits, and
horizontal and vertical shafts, and two mill sites. The East Fork and Six-Mile claims are accessible along the Seward and
Hope Highways. The mine includes a total of 66 federal claims and 17 state claims in approximately 2,200 acres.
Primary mining infrastructure exists within the Resurrection Creek holdings, three miles of which are only accessible through locked gates. This infrastructure includes an extensive settling system of established French drains, ditches and 33 settling ponds. A network of 9.5 miles of established mining access roads and an unquantified length of ATV trails connect the claims in the Resurrection Creek area. The fourteen mile Palmer Creek Road allows access to the claims in that area, and the East Fork and Six Mile claims are accessible along the Seward and Hope Highways.
Four approved equipment fords allow access to claims on the west side of Resurrection Creek. Two hand-pulled trams allow access across Resurrection Creek during high water events and Hope Mining Company has a permit for ATV crossing on the Resurrection Creek Footbridge. Current, approved plans of operation include the ability to install a heavy equipment grade bridge across Resurrection Creek with bridge abutments already in place.
Within the Resurrection Creek holdings and within the three miles between HMC’s locked gates are 10 established mining camps associated with various mining areas.
All camps include aromatically controlled gravity-flex toilets (outhouses) with manually dispensed microfilament sanitizing stations (toilet paper roles).
Camp 1 consists of a historic 2-room log cabin with kitchen and bunks, a shower building, a four-bunk bunkhouse, a historic log cabin tool shed and a gold cleaning room. These facilities are on Resurrection Creek Road at approximately Mile 3.2.
Camp 2 includes a muster point and gathering area, a bath house with shower, toilet and sink and a four bunk bunkhouse with two rooms including a kitchen. Fuel Storage, Storage, Power, Bath House and Gold Cleaning Facilities
Camp 3 includes a contained bulk fuel storage area with a total of 3,000 gallons of storage in four tanks, a generator shed and generators that power Camps 1 through 3 and various storage (Connex) containers and a secure gold cleaning room.
Camp 6 consists of a two-room cabin with a kitchen and storage facilities and a septic system.
Camps 2, 3 and 6 have leach fields (septic systems). Sourants Camp on the west side of Resurrection Creek includes a two-bunk
bunkhouse with a cook stove.
