Title: Slumach's lost gold mine has been found.
Post by: QuinanBear on July 13, 2017, 09:15:28 AM
 I have spend quite some time researching geological maps, studying the BCGS maps and using google earth. After some long hours of searching the area around Pitt lake, I have come to a place that had a high grade sample taken from the lower end of the creek  Within the canyon you can see the following markers.
 A creek with no outlet at the bottom of the canyon.
 A large bench shaped rock with rusty colored moss, from which you can see three sharp peaks on the east canyon wall that is lit up by the sun at first light while you're still in darkness.
 Three peaks  to the west on a lower ridge about 50 to 100 feet in height and the treasure area is to the lower right of those. They are first seen a few miles away before you get there.
 Once you get to the creek the water there is almost white and going up you come to a place where the bedrock is bare and it is very well hidden because of it's location with sharp ridges and high mountains all around it.

 I am taking a hike there at the end of July 2017 to document it all. A quick trip from Grande Prairie AB should take 5 days. I will show pics once I'm back.

It should be an interesting hike.  Rough area so be careful.  Look out for his ghost.

To late Ryan I have a visual on the peaks. You may as well turn around.

 Just my luck.... Getting ready for my trip into the mountains and fires and closers are all over the area. I hope that it's all over by the time I go down there, who knows , maybe the ground is cleared and it will be easier going.  I have a feeling the creeks will be low as well so good chance to see more.
 I will add that the "Large bench shaped rock" is roughly 35ft long, 8ft wide, 5ft high at the lower bench part and about 10ft in total height. It sits about 100ft from the creek on a slight incline. The three peaks that Slumach saw  that the morning sun first lights up, can be seen from this rock. There is rust colored moss on parts of this rock. Here is a drawing of what the bench shaped rock kind of looks like.

 Quick question.
 What is the average distance a person can travel in areas of rock slides?

D.F. Has no clue what prospecting or Treasure hunting is. If he did they would be doing what I will be doing and that is showing the area. Not showing people  looking at maps and then heading there to check. The sad thing, is that they are into season 2 of the show and still nothing, I find that SOOOO funny. The good thing is I will have a lot of viewers when I show my location. All because these guys kind of reeled in the  people and got them hooked on the tale.  Then I come in the picture and show this spot after only a few months of research, instead of 40/50 years or more like D.F. and his band of merry men. lol

Lol - post burn sounds good - not so much brush and branch to work through. Yep, nothing but filthy ash, dust and charcoal covered fallen logs to crawl over and under. Perhaps 1KM/hour if you work very hard and have not far to go - could be much worse or better depending on actual condition. Have to look to know - pessimistic assessments of such conditions usually overstate what can be accomplished.
Title: Re: Slumach's lost gold mine has been found.
Post by: QuinanBear on July 15, 2017, 04:33:27 PM
 My estimate was 1km per hour taking in account the odd stop to check spots out and for documentation. My journey is about 3  miles long and I'm thinking to be walking about 12hrs to do it.
 Here is a view of the bench shaped rock using google earth.

 I would like to make something clear about what I am going in the mountains to do.

 I am not looking for potential locations where Slumach's gold mine  could be.. (So don't ask to come and help find the area).  I have the area and I am just going in to take pictures and video of it all so everyone can see that the lost mine has been found.
 It has been over 100 yrs since the tale broke out and if you think that you can go in there today and see gold just laying on top of bare bedrock waiting for you to pick it all up, then you better wake up and smell the coffee. Any place that would of had that amount of gold out on top of bedrock for you to see, then I am certain someone with a helicopter or even the military would have found it long ago. Although, if there was that amount of gold showing, then there is tons of it in the soil and under larger rocks.

 Once you see where this little hidden area is, you will palm yourself in the forehead and say " I should of had a V8"or " Why didn't I see that" lol

Have you already staked this ground off(claimed it) ?  I hope so...........Do it before ya let everyone know..... :D

Post by: mcbain on July 16, 2017, 09:01:08 PM
Do not think it can be staked.I think it is in a park.That would not stop crom and goons.That being said some years back a guy I know well had a claim high up in the mountains above such area.He never heard of slumach.He wondered off his claim and ended up in a deep creek ravine and needed air support to get out.Had to wait a day so he kept prospecting and found nothing..On his return he read the story and swears that is exactly where he was.The pilot that flew himout died in a crash and cannot confirm the location and mike the claim owner found nothing.and has no desire to go back.Just saying  Luck ,Mcbain.

The better part of the area is in a park but where the creek runs out of the park at the end, has a good panning area that is out of the park. I will put a claim there .  This was the only place I could find that had all the markers in their right places as they would of see them when Slumach and Jackson were there.

I cannot wait to hear your adventure.  For your walk in, please assume it will take about twice as long as you conservatively estimate.  All kinds of things affect time to destination, including up and down, not being able to walk in a straight line and perhaps some backtracking.  Also, try to avoid areas with low bush birch.  It is like willow with lots of branches that get pushed down and intertwined by the snow.  On Google Earth, the area might look like a pasture but if that stuff is in your way, it makes walking any distance a nightmare.  Good luck.

Thanks Sunshine. I have given myself an average pace of 20ft every 3 minutes for making the trip and then added an extra day for the unexpected or to have extra time for exploring. As far as the bush goes, I do have an options of either bushes (not sure on height or type) or following the creek where bedrock is seen in many areas or I can stay up on a rock slide that runs the entire canyon. All in all I will be fine, I am a true woodsman (Metis)  that spent 13yrs trapping alone with just a rifle and ate mostly freshly killed animals. I know many things could go wrong and I hope I have the right kit with me for anything that might happen.
 The rocks tell me that this gold has been buried in order to keep it hidden but I'm sure there will be some gold around that can be found just to show that the area has nice nuggets.
 One more thing about the area and the markers mentioned by Jackson.
 The three sharp peaks, each about 50 to 100 feet high, that is seen a few miles away  and with the treasure to the lower right of them, will only be seen when you get to the entrance of the canyon which is about 2 miles long or a little more, depending on how you look at it. I do have the owner of a film company that wants to come but I will go in alone at first and see if my filming is good enough.

Hi.Rumour is that Slumach Kidnapped  several gals and carried them off to his hiding spot.All hearsay of course and it is a long way in there..I  do not think they would of made it..He would have had his fun and disposed of them along the way.Keep your eyes open for something resembelling a grave site.A find of small human bones would give some crediability too the whole story.Just saying.Luck,Mcbain.

Yea they did not hang  him for being a nice guy.The police of the day suspected him of being a murdering thief.They had to have something to come to that conclusion.Luck,Mcbain.

I don't think I will find human remains there but you never know. As far as the mine is concerned, it was a placer deposit with gold right in the open. I don't believe that Slumach or Jackson made an adit or anything like that.  Like Jackson said, it is very well guarded by mountains and ridges and is not a place that someone would take the time to go unless they knew it was there. I can't wait to go and show all the area and all the markers within that area.  There are many who want to come with me but I feel it safer if I take my first trip in alone.

So whats the verdict here?Did you make it and find stuff or have you dissappeared on us maybe eaten by a Sasquatch?id like to know because Ive had a theory on this tale for years and it would be nice to know if Im still on the right track or not.Im not looking for it but just interested in the story and facts.Thanks

Hey Herman.only been about six weeks.Hardley time to get there let alone back out all that bullion <-laugh->.I believe in the other guy.Slumachs gold if any came from the north end of the Harrison country and lilloet area.Much easier to kill and steal.If the natives new where gold was why have none come forward.They new what the white man was looking for and soon learned its value.are they tring too keep a secret? do not think so.Luck Mcbain.

it's impolitic to do that alone. i 've never heard any big mine finding be found by one person. i have find some clues of a gold mine but never try to find locate that because it can not be done by one man.  the difficulty is that it's not easy to find someone to do that together. not only gold mine, there are many kimberlite pipes that contains diamond remain to be found in Canada. 

cheers

McBain-The Spanish were mining  here 100 years before the Brits even showed up.Thats where the Natives "learned" their stuff and knew of the value.I dont know if they were enslaved or hired to work for them but there is mining smelters from back in those days between Silver river and Cogburn creek on Harrison Lake on the east side.also Spanish canons have been found in the Harrison river years ago when they were dredging it.

Hey.Herman.Did not know about the spanish.I did know about the Russian forts all up and down the pacific coast.What I do not know is whether the russians were minors or just explores and trappers.Not much to be found on that.Back in the 70s some forestry guys found one of these stones forts in the Hazelton area,found remains of old muskets also.It was very high up in the mountians.They asked all the local native bands about it but got no answers.They new nothing leading me to believe the Russians avoided contact with the locals as much as possible.The Spanish on the other hand were minors and slavers.Only have to look at what they pulled off in south America with the Incas and such.I still do not believe in the pitt river story.How much if any gold is found in the Pitt.There would be traces of something other than (D.s) nugget that shows up on all his vids.Just saying  luck Mcbain.

The Russians were here longer than anyone gives them credit for it and there were other people here during and before the native Indians.There is a 8 foot rock carving near Pemberton of a spaceman and when the elders around here were asked they had no idea.After it was dated it was found out to be around 2000 years older than anything from the natives around.The Spanish used religion as an excuse to do what they did and they also brought the first wave of small pox albeit by accident.The Brits saw this and how well it worked so they brought the second wave but this one was on purpose.There is so much stuff coming out now that it seems people have been on this planet for thousands if not millions of years all over it.Just check out some of the credible archeologists out thereI think Christopher Dunn really got the ball rolling when he was able to prove the pyramids in Egypt were made by machines and not the slave pulling rope BS we were taught in school.Just like Twain said-dont let your schooling interfere with your education

Hey herman.I do not brlieve in all that bible thumping garbage.No matter how you slice it.All the slaves in the world could not pull that 50 ton rock thousands of miles through the desert sand.The rocks are laser cut smooth.Not the work of the stone masons.And how many thousands of these stones were needed.That brings up the next question.?How many logs are there in the desert?None where did they get all those logs to roll those mighty stones.Next how did they lift them.They did not.The bible says. <-laugh-> <-laugh-> <-laugh-> <-laugh-> <-laugh-> <-laugh-> <-laugh-> <-laugh-> and more wants to make me puke.Trouble is alot of folks believe this nonsence..Luck Mcbain.
