Claim: 1060507 Type: Placer Gold Claim Fraser River - Lillooet, British Columbia
Located within 3 hours from nearly all major centres in Southwest BC and covering just over 100 acres this claim has enough room for years of exploration. A year-round gravel road comes within 300 meters of the claim boundary and also leads to vehicle accessible camp spots to the south. A quad trail exists on the claim that can be taken down to the lower benches and river.
This claim has a rich history with three recorded hand mining sites from the mid-1800s within its boundaries - including two bench operations and a bar. Evidence of this history abounds in the hand stacked cobbles throughout the claim. The ground features approximately 45 acres of mineable bench area, a potential remnant of the river's prior course. The present river channel courses through the eastern edge of the claim providing about 750 meters of water access including a bedrock exposure, cobble fields, and a bar that emerges as the river recedes from late summer onwards.
