West Kootenay Placer Claims For Sale


Sheep Creek - SalmoRiver

Phenomenal Placer Gold Opportunities

The West Kootenay District has been steeped in mining history since the earliest prospectors came to the region to pan for gold during the late 1860s. It was not, however, until the later 1890s when prospectors began tracing the gold to its mother-source, that the region realized its biggest boom. Numerous high-grade hardrock deposits of gold and silver were discovered, which ignited the opening of several large mines in the Ymir, Sheep Creek and Erie Camps.
