vancouver island placer claims
« on: April 12, 2011, 02:29:21 PM »
just got off the phone with mto and they told me that the nanaimo river is not placer or mineral claimable.

my question is why.

does anyone know if the little qualicum river is a good place for placer mining and if its allowed

any help would be appreciated.

There's a small placer staking reserve on the Nanaimo River...MTO map 092G 001 ... with 3 claims on it....but I don't think the river is part of the claims...there's one on the Chemainus river aswell...MTO map 092B 082...the south fork is the Greater Nanaimo Watershed....north fork is open to mineral staking

Here's another one of those off the beaten path staking reserves....this one is unclaimed...past Port Alberni on the way to Bamfield....It's on Corrigan Creek...a tributary of Franklin River...known for fine gold in shallow surface diggins...surprised its not claimed...I have enough ground to work already...the old mine above had assays as high as 200+ gpt...check out MTO map 092F 007...here's some info....
