Done a lot of reading on the early days of prospecting... Can't ever recall reading about the great Burns Lake Gold Rush.

I'm in the process of relocating from the east kootenays to the burns lake area.
For the last couple of years I've swung and shook my gp 4500 and pan everywhere I go. As I'm preparing to leave the wildhorse saying goodbye to the Dewdney trail I have to wonder what's in store. Heading to a community in the province that I've only ever briefly stop at to refill my coffee cup and buy some more beef jerky.

Are people actively prospecting in the "lakes district" or should I just buy a fishing rod?
Can my detector be reconfigure to find worms.... Grin
I know "gold is where you find it" however some areas are much more productive that others...

Being that I have never been there can everyone share any information about the area? Or local contacts?

Lived in that area for a while, never ever heard of anyone ever prospecting or finding gold there. Doesn't hurt to look though......

Look on MTO..from memory there are a few placer claims around there - maybe west...north for sure in the Germanson/Manson area. Nothing huge that I've heard of. Lots of good fishing - big country.

If you like fossil hunting there used to be a good area out in the Francois lake area. Used to stop and pick up a few when we had the time..
I have heard something about opals, but never knew the location though.
