Like many of the mountains in Juneau, the area around the Herbert Glacier contains gold and thus is riddled with mining claims. As the glacier continues its retreat more and more ground comes open and available to possible mining. Located within the urban boundary of Juneau, this area would be directly impacted by the proposed changes to the mining ordinance. 

Come learn about the past, present, and future of Herbert Glacier and what mining in Juneau means.
