This collection, compiled by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, pertains to state land associated with Revised Statute 2477. Enacted by Congress as Section 8 of the Mining Law of 1866, RS 2477 granted states and territories unrestricted rights-of-way over federal lands that had no existing reservations or private entries. The law remained in effect until Congress repealed it in 1976. More information can be found in the ADNR RS 2477 Fact Sheet.  Finding aids are available on the ARLIS document server in PDF format. The GSC File index is arranged by GSC file number. A location index is sorted by meridian, township and range, when available for the record. A third finding aid is provided in shelf list order. Printed finding aids are filed on the first shelf of the collection.
