Goldbelt, Incorporated is an urban Alaska Native, for‐profit corporation headquartered in Juneau, Alaska. Incorporated on January 4, 1974 following the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA), Goldbelt’s primary mission is to manage assets and conduct business for the benefit of its more than 3,600 shareholders. Goldbelt first ventured into the logging and timber industry but later expanded its operations into tourism, which still remains an integral part of its operations. Today, the majority of Goldbelt’s revenue and income derives from government contracting and services.
Goldbelt’s shareholder base consists of Alaska Natives who are of Tlingit and Haida descent. The Tlingit and Haida tribes are the indigenous people of Southeast Alaska, whose rich history spans more than ten thousand years in the region. Goldbelt shareholders own the entire 272,000 shares of Goldbelt stock, representing assets in excess of $100 million in addition to over 32,000 acres of land in the vicinity of Juneau. Goldbelt seeks to honor and preserve the Tlingit culture - its history, art, dance, legends, and the traditions of its Alaska Native shareholders. Learn more about Goldbelt Heritage.
The company is named after a richly mineralized zone in Southeast Alaska that encompasses 33,000 acres of Goldbelt’s land holdings— an area that stretches along the mainland from Frederick Sound to Berners Bay. Learn more about Goldbelt Lands.
Goldbelt’s business is segmented into its Alaska Operations and its Government Subsidiaries located in the Lower 48 States. Our Alaska Operations are centered on tourism and mariculture and include the Mount Roberts Tramway, Seadrome Marina, and Goldbelt Seafoods.

GLOBAL BUSINESS OPERATIONS
The Small Business Administration’s 8(a) Business Development Program is a business assistance program for small disadvantaged businesses. The 8(a) Program offers a broad scope of assistance to firms that are owned and controlled at least 51% by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.
Participants can receive sole-source contracts, up to a ceiling of $20 million. This helps 8(a) firms build their competitive and institutional know-how while encouraging them to participate in competitive acquisitions. 8(a) firms are also able to form joint ventures and teams to bid on contracts. This enhances the ability of 8(a) firms to perform larger prime contracts and overcome the effects of contract bundling, the combining of two or more contracts together into one large contract.
