The COQ 8 tenure is situate 12 kilometers east-northeast of Hope, BC, north of the confluence of Ladner Creek with the Coquihalla River. Access to the general claim area is gained via BC Highway #5 (the Coquihalla Highway), which leads northeast from Hope toward Merritt, BC. The claim may be easily accessed from the Carolin Mine Exit on Hwy 5, via the gravel road extending upstream on the Coquihalla River, then up along Ladner Creek from its mergence with the Coq, thence along a newly built rough dozed roadway put in during recent Fisheries’ work on Ladner Creek just downstream from the old trestle.
The East Hozameen Fault, a northwest/southeast trending gold-bearing serpentine zone, more commonly known as the "Coquihalla Serpentine Belt", traverses in parallel to the claim. The general vicinity of the COQ 8 claim bears a rich history of hosting gold-bearing mineralization, with the past producing mines, the Emancipation Mine and the Carolin Mine, with the Carolin bearing the greater prominence. .
Activity in the region, as with that throughout the mining industry, has fluctuated according to the rising and falling precious metals markets. Following decades of low prices, the upswing in precious metals has generated renewed interest and extensive explorations. Firms and individuals are now focused on many of the older claim areas.
Ideally suited for further explorations and development, recreational prospecting, or as a capital investment property.
