Title: 1062209 & 1069751 Type: Placer Gold Claim Location: Eastgate, British Columbia
This pair of claims covers just over 100 acres centrally located in Southwestern BC within easy reach of Kamloops, Kelowna, and the lower mainland. The ground is comprised of several inside bends, gravel bars, and a significant bedrock exposure stretching across the Similkameen River.
Access is easily obtained to both sides of the river with a bridge crossing at the west end and from the Crowsnest highway directly onto the claim at the Northeast boundary. The claims contain approximately 750 meters of water frontage on each side with extensive options for both panning and high banking. The Similkameen River can be worked for about eight months each year from March to November with progressively lower water levels exposing additional gravels from June onwards.
Basic supplies and fuel can be had from the Eastgate area just a few minutes away and Princeton is a short 30 minute drive where full lodging, dining, and supplies are available. There are numerous camping options in the immediate vicinity including a large flat trailer accessible riverfront spot just west of the claim, and Copper Creek camp ground ten minutes East on Highway 3.
