Claim: 1060507 & 1068474
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 150 acres in two connected tenures. This claim group has enough room for years of exploration. The arid location in the Fraser canyon area provides a 9-10 month mining season. Existing access exists to the claim on both sides of the river with ATV access opened to working areas down on 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 over 10 acres of mechanically accessible low bench and bar area, suitable for a small-scale mechanical operation. 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.
