Explore the old underground copper mine at Britannia Beach, near Vancouver BC Canada. Take a guided tour through the old tunnels, blasted out of solid rock and experience the working life of a hard rock miner. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia... Britannia Beach is a small unincorporated community in the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District located approximately 55 kilometers north of Vancouver, British Columbia on the Sea-to-Sky Highway on Howe Sound. It has a population of about 300. The community first developed between 1900 and 1904 as the residential area for the staff of the Britannia Mining and Smelting Company.

In 1864 Vancouver Island had its own brief gold rush creating Leechtown. The original cairn commemorating the boomtown has long vanished. With a team of volunteers and supporters VIPMA (the Vancouver Island Placer Mining Association) replaced the cairn with a new boulder monument. Unveiled by the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, the Honourable Judith Guichon, in July 2014 it marks the 150th anniversary of this still producing gold area.
VIPMA is the Vancouver Island Placer Mining Association, a group of dedicated panners looking for gold west of Victoria BC. This video highlights the Iron Wheel claim about 20 minutes north of Sooke and only accessible by VIPMA members. With good luck and much effort the historic Leech River yields fine particles and the occasional flake of gold. Its a great way to spend the day1

At this year's Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (VRIC), John Kaiser of Kaiser Research stopped by to chat about some of the junior mining companies on his watch list. Interestingly, he noted that one third of the companies at VRIC also make up one-third of the 100 companies on his latest Bottom Fish report, assembled at the end of 2015. "This is the cream of the crop assembling into this place," he said. And while Kaiser admitted that the sector isn't out of the woods yet, he's taking the stance that "this is it." "We will never, ever again see such an assembly of management talent, inside juniors with good projects, a lot of them still with money, and at an incredible valuation level where the retail investor has never, ever, in my 30 years of experience, had a chance to get acc...
