Rusty Buck 11.66 g/t Au and In Between 7.75 g/t Native Au. The Bridge River Mining District is one of British Columbia’s oldest gold camps. Production commenced in 1858 when placer gold was recovered from Bridge River, near its confluence with the Fraser River. The placer gold was followed upstream from the Fraser, and in 1859, a second discovery was made on Gun Creek, near its confluence with the Bridge River, close to the (then) future site of the Minto Mine. Extensive placer operations were also initiated on Tyaughton and Hurley Rivers and on Cadwallader Creek. It wasn’t until the late 1800’s, however, that an interest emerged in identifying the placer source. This lead to the discovery of the Bralorne and the Pioneer deposits near the turn of the century. The Bralorne Mine became the largest gold producer in the region, yielding over 2.8 million ounces of gold and over 7 million ounces of silver. The Pioneer Mine, south of the Bralorne, and situate along the same greenstone belt, produced over 1.3 million ounces of gold and 25 million ounces of silver.

IN BETWEEN

~ UNDEVELOPED - HIGH-POTENTIAL FOR GOLD ~



The “In Between” tenure, a one cell claim comprising 20.398 hectares, is situate along Bridge River at Horseshoe Bend. Prospecting conducted over the tenure area during the mid 1930’s led to the discovery of a quartz vein bearing native gold. A low-tonnage bulk sample was taken, which assayed high gold values, however, low gold prices which followed the Great Depression of the 30’s, then the War years, coupled with further low gold prices, resulted in the property not being developed. GPEX conducted considerable research into the potential of this property, which resulted in its 2006 staking of the tenure. Access to the property is gained via the Bridge River Road, with the claim lying in the immediate vicinity of the famed Horseshoe Bend, approximately 24.1 road kilometres (20.25 air kilometres) northwest of Lillooet. The property is conducive to prospecting for about eight months out of the year.
