Exploring the Emancipation Mine
 
20:02
The former Emancipation mine is located 1 kilometre west of the Coquihalla River, between Fifteen Mile and Ladner creeks. Hope located approximately 15 kilometres to the southwest. The Emancipation mine was developed by five adits (adits 1-4 and A) concentrated along a series of gold-bearing quartz ±carbonate veins that cut the Spider Peak Formation. These veins were the principal ore source of the mine. However, two of the lower workings (adits 3 and 4) were driven on a talc-bearing zone within the Hozameen fault that was apparently barren. In 1933, a drift on the No. 4 level intersected a 3.35-metre wide vein directly beneath the ore zone in the No. 2 winze. The central part contained abundant sulphides and a chip sample across 2.44 metres yielded 13.71 grams per tonne gold and 3.43 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 23492). A picked sample from the face yielded 72.68 grams per tonne gold (Assessment Report 23492). There are essentially three sets of quartz± carbonate veins at the mine. These include the Boulder vein and the Dike vein, separated by a set of irregular, reverse- dipping, flat veins. Both the Dike and Boulder veins typically follow reverse fractures and vary markedly in attitude and character along strike and with depth. The flat veins apparently follow second order sigmoidal tension fractures. On the surface, close to adit 2, the Boulder vein strikes north and follows the faulted contact between the Spider Creek Formation and the Ladner Group. Farther north, the vein system splays, swings to a northeasterly strike and is locally hosted entirely within Ladner rocks. It is the widest vein on the property, varying between 0.5 and 4.6 metres in width, and dipping from 50 to 65 degrees west. It contains mainly milky to clear massive quartz, and minor amounts of calcite. The vein carries sporadic traces of disseminated pyrite, arsenopyrite and chalcopyrite, but little or no gold. Locally, the margins of the Boulder vein grade outward into brecciated zones up to 3 metres wide. These comprise fragments of Ladner rock with disseminated sulphides set in a vein matrix that contains minor to trace amounts of albite, calcite, dolomite, siderite, gypsum, pyrrhotite and marcasite. Surface drilling north of the Emancipation mine was conducted to delineate geological contacts, structures, quartz veins and mineralization. The drill holes intersected similar structures and rock types as were intersected during underground drilling. This drilling was favourable for sulphide replacement zones but no significant altered or mineralized zones were found. In 1910, the construction of the Kettle Valley railway opened the area to prospecting and mineral exploration; this led to the discovery and staking of the Emancipation claim in 1913. Intermittent production occurred at the Emancipation gold mine between 1916 and 1941. By 1921, a considerable amount of underground development work had been carried out and a 5-stamp mill installed with a 4.53 tonne per day capacity. The operator at this time was Liberator Mining Co. Between 1922 and 1933 ownership changed hands several times, with Dawson Gold Mines Ltd. as the main operator. Kettle Valley Gold Mine Ltd. conducted limited work in 1937. The mill operated at 22.68 tonnes per day with ore mined from the No. 2 level. In 1971, Aquarius Resources Ltd. restaked the Emancipation as the Hope claim group and renewed exploration on the property. In 1972, the underground workings were surveyed, mapped and sampled. Surface geological mapping was carried out in 1973. From 1974 to 1976, an extensive surface exploration was carried out under the supervision of Cochrane Consultants Ltd. In 1980, an all-weather road was constructed and further underground mapping and sampling was carried out. A surface and underground drilling program was carried out in 1981 by Aquarius Resources Ltd. Underground drilling consisted of 31 drill holes, totalling 1177 metres. Surface drilling consisted of 10 drill holes, totalling 901 metres. In 1991 and 1992, Homegold Resources, under option from Anglo Swiss Mining, conducted considerable underground refurbishing on the No. 3 and 4 levels. Three underground drill holes were completed, totalling 81.38 metres. During 1994 through 2001, Homegold Resources completed programs of geological mapping and prospecting. In 2008, Module Resources prospected the area. The Emancipation gold mine was active between 1916 and 1941, producing 18,818 grams of silver, 90,104 grams of gold, 61 kilograms of lead and 85 kilograms of zinc from a total of 1158 tonnes mined.
Underground In the Congress Mine
 
31:19
The Congress mine is centred near the north shore of Carpenter Lake, latitude 50° 52' 00", longitude 122° 43' 35", west of the mouth of Gun Creek, six kilometres northeast of Gold Bridge on Highway 40 (Figure 10a). The property was first visited in 1985. Geological mapping was completed by the writer during several visits to the property in 1986 and Ace adit was examined and sampled. The Howard adits and Lou decline surveyed in July 1988. History The property, consisting of the Congress mine and several nearby mineral prospects, is owned jointly by Levon Resources Limited and Veronex Resources Limited. The claim block includes a number of reverted Crown-granted claims including Stibnite 1-4, Snowflake fraction, Turner 1, Turner 2, Robert fraction, David fraction, Nap 1, 3 to 9 and Ace 17, 18, 20, 22, 23, 28. The history of the Congress property began about 1910 when the 'Northstar-University' vein was found, following the earlier discovery of placer gold on Gun Creek. The Congress vein was staked by E.J. Taylor and J. Shuster in 1913 and, according to Cooke et al.(1986), C.H. Allan and Associates produced a small amount of gold-antimony ore from a short adit. Congress Gold Mines Limited acquired the property from T. Turner in 1933 and developed three adit levels on the Congress zone between 1934 and 1937. During this period 940 tonnes of ore was tested at the Wayside mill; this yielded 2.58 kilograms of gold, 1.31 kilograms of silver and 38 kilograms of copper. From 1946 to 1950 Sheep Creek Gold Mines Limited managed the property and developed two additional underground levels at the Congress mine and connected the workings with an inclined shaft. In 1959 the Howard vein was discovered 900 metres west of the Congress mine. Ownership of the property passed to the Ace Mining Company Limited then, under option agreement, to Bralorne Pioneer Mines Limited from 1960 to 1964. In this period Bralorne Pioneer Mines Limited did underground work on the Howard vein and continued drifting at the Congress mine while also carrying out programs of surface and underground drilling. The Howard vein was drifted on for about 160 metres at this time, also several new mineralized zones were discovered, including the Bluff zone northeast of the Congress mine and the Paul zone on the north side of Gun Creek, 1.5 kilometres north of the previous discoveries. In 1965 the Ace Mining Company drilled the Paul zone and did other prospecting on the property. Additional exploration was undertaken by Rayrock Exploration Limited. in 1964 and Alice Arm Mining Limited in 1972. In 1975 Alice Arm was reorganized as New Congress Resources, Limited and, over the next five years completed much drilling and drifting on the Howard zone. The property was acquired by Levon Resources Limited in 1982 and under option agreement Veronex Resources Limited funded continuation of the exploration program. The principal exploration has been diamond drilling and underground development of the Howard and Lou zones in 1984 to 88, and a bioleaching pilot project in 1988 and 1989. (Due to the overall fine-grained nature of the ore and the association of gold and silver with arsenopyrite and stibnite, a 250,000-litre capacity biological leaching pilot plant was installed in the Plateau Pond area near the west boundary of the property with the collaboration of Giant Bay Resources Limited. A 600-tonne test sample for this plant was mined from the Howard and Ace workings of the mine). No further work has been done on the property because of disappointing results at a time of low metal prices. Back to top Top Description The Congress property is underlain by a panel of Pioneer pillow lavas and associated basalt feeder dikes and small cogenetic gabbro bodies (Church, 1986a; Cooke, 1986c). These rocks are bounded on the east and west by cataclastic facies of the Fergusson assemblage, including milled ribbon chert, phyllite, graphitic schist, and some marble lenses (Figure 11a). Feldspar porphyry dikes of Tertiary age are conspicuous in the mine workings as well as areas of fracturing and faulting. The ore is relatively simple consisting mainly of pyrite, arsenopyrite and stibnite in discontinuous northerly trending quartz veins accompanied by carbonate alteration.

Finding a surprise adit under a waterfall at the Ashlu mines
 
11:13
The Ashlu quartz veins were discovered in 1923 by F. Pykett and associates, who originally called the claims the Golden King group. Over 30 metres of underground development were done in 1924. By 1930, the claims were known as the Gold Coin group, owned by the Pykett estate, C. Anderson and R.V. Carson. The Ashlu Gold Mining Syndicate set up a 23 tonne per day mill at the mine site which operated intermittently from May 1937 until October 1939 when the ore was depleted. In 1947, Giant Mines & Metals explored the area as the M2-5 mineral claims. Since 1975, about 1000 metres of diamond drilling have been completed on the deposit. Osprey Mining and Explorations Limited reportedly installed a 91 tonne per day mill in 1979, but except for 36 tonnes milled in 1984 no other production was recorded. Osprey Mining and Exploration leased the property from 1979 to 1985 and carried out an extensive development program. In 1985, Tenquille Resources Ltd. acquired the property and in 1987 retained Cooke Geological Consultants to carry out underground sampling. In 1988, Valentine Gold Corp. took an option on the property. As of 1994, the former Ashlu mine is staked as the Au claim and owned by L. Demczuk. The surrounding area was restaked as the Ashlu 1 to 5 claims by 421424 B.C. Ltd. and Homegold Resources Ltd was retained to prospect and geologically map the claims. During 2009 through 2012, Ashlu Mines completed a program of rock, soil and silt sampling on the area.

Exploring the Veritas Mine
 
03:47
The Bridge River camp has been the most significant lode gold producing district in B.C. Initial discoveries of placer gold were made in 1863 and by the end of the nineteenth century many of the veins which were to become producers in the twenties and thirties had been discovered. The largest producers in the area were the Pioneer (1.3 m. oz, 1928-1962) and Bralorne (2.8 m. oz, 1932-1971). Smaller producers were the Minto, Wayside and Congress. The initial discovery date of the Veritas vein is not known but by 1922 the workings are described in McCann's GSC Memoir 130 as consisting of a 225 ft tunnel and several open cuts being worked by Matt Forster. By 1937, C.E. Cairnes (Memoir 213) describes 3 adits, the lowest being 550 ft. A 28 f t winze and short raise had alsobeen driven from the #3 adit (the uppermost adit at that time). A short (20 ft) upper adit (#4) was later driven. The property apparently then lay dormant for several years until in 1978. M. Cook commissioned K e r r , Dawson Assoc. t o do geological mapping, sampling and limited geochemical soil and rock chip sampling on the Veritas and Artomas claim groups which covered an area of approx. 3.5 km by 1.5 km on the west side of La Joie Lake and included the present Veritas Group except 2225-2227 and 3138.

This video is about panning for placer gold on the VIPMA claims near Sooke BC. The Vancouver Island Placer Mining Association holds a number of claims on rivers north and west of Victoria BC, near Sooke. It's an old historic gold area that still recovers the occasional small nugget or flake after a lot of hard work. Members get access to private surface lands and come from all walks of life and backgrounds. The rivers are pristine, fairly safe, and the only equipment needed are pans, shovels, a strong back and much patience! This video shows some of the members on a typical outing, digging, panning, and enjoying the incredible country. A Phantom quadcopter was used for the aerial shots with a GoPro3, the same camera was also used for the underwater shots.

Exploring the Wayside Mine
 
22:38
The Wayside mine is located on the north side of Carpenter Lake at latitude 50° 52' 30", longitude 122° 49' 40", 3.2 kilometres north of Gold Bridge (Figure 9a). Access to the property is by bush roads that connect directly to Highway 40 and the Gun Lake road. The property and mine site was visited repeatedly by the writer and crew between 1986 and 1988. The geology of the property was done together with a magnetometer survey and logging of 20 drill cores provided by Chevron Minerals Limited. The history of the Wayside property has been outlined by Cairnes (1937), Kelly (1972) and McAllister et al. (1988). Details of the periods of active exploration and development from 1906 to 1937, 1946 to 1953 and 1971 to 1988 are given in the Minister of Mines Annual Reports and subsequent government publications such as Exploration in British Columbia. The property was first staked by J.C. Patterson in 1900. The original claim group, comprising the Wayside, Argon, Radium, Helium and Queen City Fraction, was sold to O. Fergusson and C. Walker six years later. By 1910 three adits had been driven on the Wayside vein system and a sample of pyrite-enriched quartz ore was shipped by pack-train for testing. D.C. Paxton then acquired the property and a small mill was in operation by 1915. From 1917 to 1922 there are no reports of activity and the property passed to Messrs. Fergusson and Walker in 1924. This led to a program of sampling and geological mapping and the property was transferred to Wayside Consolidated Gold Mines Limited in 1928. By 1933 complete camp facilities were installed, including a hydro-electric plant; the Wayside vein system had been exposed on five levels in 300 metres of tunnelling over a vertical interval of 150 metres. Production in 1915 and from 1934 to 1937, totalled 39,109 tonnes, yielding 166.1 kilograms of gold and 26.1 kilograms of silver (MINFILE 092JNE030). From the end of operations in 1937 until recently only a small amount of exploration work was done, mainly by the L.A.P. Mining Company Limited (1946 to 1953) and the Ace Mining Company Limited (after 1959). In 1947 the mine was dewatered and rehabilitated with the addition of hoisting equipment 900 tonnes of ore were produced for metallurgical testing. A fire at the mine in 1953 curtailed further curtailed further development. In 1971 Dawson Range Mines Limited (Carpenter Lake Resources Limited) acquired the property and in the following four years completed a number of programs including geological and geophysical surveys, underground rehabilitation, sampling, and diamond drilling (2344 metres in 1980). This led to the discovery of the 'New Discovery' and 'Commodore' zones and the '3T' vein. In 1984 the property was optioned to Amazon Petroleum Corporation Limited and many targets were retested by diamond drilling (1829 metres in 1984; 2438 metres in 1985). Early in 1987, Amazon Petroleum Inc. and Carpenter Lake Resources Limited optioned the property to Chevron Canada Resources Limited. This began renewed exploration activity on the property based on similarities in geological setting, morphology and mineralization between the Wayside mine and the gold-quartz veins at Bralorne, 15 kilometres to the south. A total of 21 diamond drill-holes (3006 metres) were completed in Chevron's 1987-88 program to locate faulted segments of the Wayside veins and similar mineralization. Work in 1992 by Wayside Gold Mines Ltd. and Brigadier Resources Limited, in a 50/50 partnership relationship, included dewatering of the lower levels of the Wayside mine and resampling the main vein and Notman vein systems. They drilled 31 underground holes in 1993. Wayside Gold Mines Ltd. became International Wayside Gold Mines Ltd. in 1994.

Exploring the Gold Placer Claims in Northern BC
 
02:18
video exploring the areas around gold placier claims in Northern BC, in the early 30's hydraulic mining was used in this area, you can still use the gold pan method, however in the interest of sifting more yards of material many miners have gone to the heavy equipment methods cleaning out the mats and using shaker tables, this mine was two days from clean out process so we missed the operation, the crews here are small to diminish overhead. The water canon remains on display in the town which houses a small store and camp site.

On the north ridge of French creek near the North end of the forestry road north of Lillooet on the west ridge of the Fraser river. For the past seven years my prospecting friend and I have been exploring gold rich areas of British Columbia we have been gradually narrowing down our search areas and for the Summer of 2013 we are planning a more detailed search with our Garrett AT Gold metal detectors and the Garrett Pro Pointer, they work really well together and both are 100% waterproof, and the batteries last a long time. Any comments are welcome.

#7 Ghost Camp Found,  1900-1949  in BC's Boundary Country.
 
11:00
http://BcGHOSTtowns.com This is not "The City of Paris Ghost Town" It is in fact the #7 mine site and is one of nicest little abandoned mine camps found in it's normal state of decay... Here is the MINEFILE info for the #7 The No. 7 mine is on the claim of the same name (Lot 623), on a ridge crest at the elevation of 1370 metres, 3.3 kilometres east of the confluence of McCarren and Gidon creeks, 7.5 kilometres southeast of Greenwood. Access to the property is 2.4 kilometres travelling southerly and up hill by winding dirt road from the McCarren Creek road. The Lexington (082ESE041) and City of Paris (082ESE042) lie 2.5 kilometres to the southeast. The intermittent operations of the No. 7 mine from 1901 to 1945 produced a total of 13,748 tonnes of ore yielding 92.4 kilograms of gold, 3110 kilograms of silver, 97 tonnes of lead, and 6.2 tonnes of zinc. The potential of No. 7 was recognized early in the Greenwood camp and the claim was Crown granted in 1895 to J. Schofield. By 1897, a 40-metre deep inclined shaft was developed on the claim to service 60 metres of underground drifting. At the approximate time of final closing of the mine 50 years later, in 1945, the mine workings comprised a 100-metre inclined shaft, adit levels at 12 and 90 metres, and intermediate levels at 30 and 55 metres. Old mine maps show that the underground work on these four levels totals about 1580 metres. The 90-metre adit level is open from portal to face, a distance of about 580 metres, but the other levels are partly caved southeast of the inclined shaft. Other workings include an adit drift 40 metres northwest of the 12-metre No. 1 adit, a large number of surface pits, and a deep trench along the vein from which some underhand stoping was done. The mine is developed on a quartz vein on a major southeasterly trending boundary fault between Upper Paleozoic Knob Hill Group on the northeast and Attwood Group on the southwest. Contained in part within the fault zone, and hosting this vein, are a schistose quartz feldspar intrusion and serpentinite. A variety of young Tertiary dikes have invaded, and are superimposed on, the vein structure. The quartz vein at the mine site has been traced for a strike length of more than 300 metres. The vein ranges from 10 centimetres to 1.5 metres wide and dips 40 to 65 degrees northeast, having dike rocks or chloritic schists of the Knob Hill Group on the hanging wall and highly sheared talc-carbonate rocks of the serpentinite body on the footwall. Mineralization consists of pyrite, sphalerite and some galena dispersed in blue-grey quartz along the central portion of the vein. The most productive part of the vein was southeast of the inclined shaft above the 55-metre level. A large number of northeasterly striking faults displace the vein. Displacements along these faults range from a few feet to almost 60 metres. The maximum displacement was measured on the fault exposed in the southeast end of the 90-metre level and on the surface 60 metres southeast of the long open cut. The vein has not been located beyond this fault. Movement along these faults has been largely post mineral. Evidence of some pre-mineral movement is furnished by unbroken vein quartz seams and lenses, up to 20 centimetres by 3 metres, in the fault zone exposed at the southeast end of the 90-metre level. Subsidiary faults of small displacement are part of this same fault zone, and offset both vein and the post mineral quartz trachyte dike. Thus this single fault zone has been the locus of both pre- and post-mineral movements. The No. 7 fault zone is an ancient structure believed to be a possible continuation of the Chesaw thrust in Washington state. The serpentinite is part of a disrupted Paleozoic ophiolite complex. Because of the ductile nature of these rocks, the belt has become a tectonically active zone and the locus of much shearing, thrusting, igneous intrusion and vein mineralization. The common Mg-Fe carbonate (listwanite) alteration and serpentinization are believed to be related to major thrusting of the ophiolitic rocks during the Jurassic. In the early Tertiary these thrusts were re-activated by a tectonic compression directed subparallel to the developing northerly elongated graben structures. Igneous activity at the same time is believed to be related to numerous vein deposits. No ore reserve estimate is available for this property. Cool stuff! I would like to take some pictures of the old cabins. Thanks for sharing! Thanks to a local resident for help and directions Check back next summer for a video on what is left of the City of Paris BC. Thanks again to David, Snuffy & Jim British Columbia Historian John Mitchell

Flathead Coal Mining
 
02:39
UPDATE (june 20, 2012): Cline Mining Corporation is suing the BC Government (BC taxpayers) for 500 million dollars for the lost revenue they claim was incurred by being expropriated from the BC Flathead. http://www.clinemining.com/ Project stopped: see Bill 2 This 3D video was created to show the downstream geography from the proposed Lodgepole Open Pit Coal Mine near Fernie, British Columbia, CANADA. Glacier National Park, Montana, USA is immediately downstream from this proposed use of an uninhabited, and unspoiled valley. This video provides its audience with a spatial reference for the state, provincial, federal, and international land use designations that have protected the ecological integrity of the transboundary flathead watershed for the past 100 years. The map intends to emphasize how this watershed, with its world class fisheries, is currently under threat from a proposed open pit coal mine located in the British Columbian headwaters of the North Fork of the Flathead River. In the United States, the North Fork of the Flathead River forms the western boundary for the Glacier National Park part of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, and has federal designation as a "Wild and Scenic River". This proposed open pit coal mine will operate in the headwaters of this wild and scenic river, an area said to contain the highest concentration of non-coastal grizzly bears in North America, on a 24/7 basis for 20 years. The Lodgepole Coal Mine, as it will be known, will be run by Cline Mining Corporation of Sudbury, Ontario. Coal produced at this mine will then be sold on the international market.
