The Scribner Creek Claim is a claim on Scribner Creek in the Klondike, the Yukon, Canada. It is owned by Tony Beets. Parker Schnabel leases the claim for season 4. It is located a 3-hour drive from Dawson City. The Parker Crew start at it in season 4. Parker buys the Hoffman Crew's D10 Dozer and Little Blue washplant for the claim. He also gets 363 YAO hopper feeder to feed Little Blue. It is located 35 miles from the Indian River Claim, with the 2000-ft all Quartz Hill on the road inbetween. After Little Blue is pushed past is limit, by running 100yd/hr and breaking the shaker drive shaft, Parker moves Big Red washplant from Indian River to Scribner Creek, renting it from Fred Dodge who now holds title to it after season 3's end.

In season 4, Parker opens 3 cuts, Scribner Creek Claim cut 1 near the creek, Scribner Creek Claim cut 2 farther from the creek, and needing to be thawed out, and Scribner Creek Claim cut 3 "Fantasyland" on the other side of the creek. FantasyLand is further inland from the creek as the land close to the creek has already need dug up. Fantasy-Land lies under the old tailings from the old cut, as the tailings were piled atop of virgin ground. Fantasy Land is 1.5 miles away from the first two cuts and the washplant by road, required to transport paydirt in rock trucks over the bridge over the creek, taking 20 minutes a trip. Because of the time involved in transport, the crew can only process 1/3 the load from Fantasy-land that the closer cuts can provide. Late into the season, Parker's crew breaks the ripper on the D10 Dozer, and has no time to get a replacement in the time left in the season, so instead he obtains a monitor to melt ground by pressure washing it with water..
