Geologically, since the melt of at least the last glacial event, values of gold and platinum from both the Upper Similkameen and Tulameen River regions have been carried downstream, to become deposited within the East Similkameen Gold District, thus, offering the best of the outflow from both of these historic gold districts. Each year, immeasurable amounts of gold and platinum [fines, float and potentially sizable nuggets] is transported down this river system from the upper gold fields, perpetually refreshing the East Similkameen River’s overall potential. Random sampling results have ranged from 20 to 50 easily visible colors per [small] pan from bank run material and gravels. By example, one client has reported a recovery of two grams over ten pans, from bank run.
Access to all properties would be considered excellent, with BC Highway #3 paralleling the south side of the Similkameen River, and the Old Hedley Road similarly bordering on the river’s north side. Properties in the East Group offers three vast Forestry camping sites, situate along the claim areas on the Old Hedley Road side of the river. These locations facilitates from rough camping up to (non-serviced) motorhome camping, while offering picturesque riverside views with an ambient atmosphere, thus enhancing the overall prospecting venture. This region is also, ideally suited for the family setting. Princeton, though a smaller community of approx. 3000, offers many services and hosts numerous retail outlets.
