Rich in History

About AKAU Alaska Gold & Resort, LLC.

The Krutzsch Family mined their claims near Nome, Alaska for many years under the name of Krutzsch Mining. Having such a foundation and history in gold and love for Alaska, Augie Krutzsch followed his passion to carry on his family's legacy to provide a rare opportunity for visitors to experience not only the beauty of the landscape and tundra, but also give guests a real testament into the historic past of Nome, Alaska. 

Augie decided on the name AKAU to represent exactly what his family's legacy is about, Alaska Gold. 


AK (abbreviation for Alaska) 

AU (periodic table for Gold) 

We try to cater to our guests to make them as comfortable as possible. Our Great Room has a view of the mountains, expansive Tundra, and a bit of the Bering Sea. There is plenty of room for Guests to visit & share stories. There is also a big screen TV to watch movies after a long day of searching for Gold, Fishing, or Venturing about the outback.

We shuttle from and to the airport. We try to limit our Guests to 20 per week, which keeps it small enough to provide our guests with that personal touch.

While  visiting Nome, Alaska, learn to prospect and pan for gold, take advantage of  the world class fishing, ecotouring, hiking, pick berries or relax, AKAU/Alaska Gold and Resort, is determined to accommodate guests and provide a once in a life time experience. We will help custom tailor your vacation to your needs.

Our goal and commitment is to provide our guests the most

amazing getaway experience, with memories to last a lifetime. 


We look forward to meeting you!
