Stopped by goldstream provincial park to check out aome old mines we have been wanting to check out. The goldstream mines were mined in the the early 1900s and 1930s for copper, silver and some gold. These mines are now in a provincial park mainly gated off, however two of the four are accessible one adit and one shaft which you can repel down to get to the workings, there are more showings and working in the area.

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. The residential areas and the mining operation were physically interrelated, resulting in coincidental mining and community disasters through its history. Today, the tow...
Well, I've had my drone now for six months... and this is a montage of some of my best shots so far. Much thanks to my valued co-pilot, Carol MacFayden. I've not had the machine for a summer yet, so hopefully many more good shots! These are mostly Vancouver Island landmarks, but a few from the Sea to Sky highway in there as well. Thanks for everyone's support so far!
A taste of jade mining in Northern British Columbia, Canada. Nephrite jade mining has a history of over 40 years in BC and the market continues to be strong. Unlike other jobs, jade mining is only operable between June and September of each year.
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.
When a small Vancouver mining company Nevsun struck gold in a remote corner of Africa, it started with so much promise. In remote Eritrea, Nevsun built a mine that was generating $700 million in profits in its first four years of operation. But it was also generating a lot of controversy – because Nevsun was partnered with a brutal dictatorship that runs the country and controls 40% of the mine. That has led to allegations by the UN and Human Rights Watch that the regime has used conscripted military labour in the mine. The Eritrea government has also been accused of funneling arms to the terrorist group al-Shabaab. Nevsun denies the allegations of human rights abuses and insists it is a “template for responsible international business.” What is the price of doing business with a dictato...
Rough jade is one of the most valuable minerals on Earth. Have you walked right over it? I show some Wyoming nephrite jade that I've found, talk about an upcoming jade mining project, and discuss the mineralogy that can lead to you finding your own jade deposits. There has been a "green gold" rush going on but few know about it. Learn how to identify jade, how to find jade, and how to become a better prospector or rock hunter. Rock hounding, rock collecting, and mining
I found a nice pocket with a couple vugs of black tourmaline (schorl). This is part 1, I've extracted about 40lbs worth of specimen quality material so far. Part 2 will follow as weather permits revisiting the mine site.
British Columbia is rich in natural resources and has 150 years of solid mining history. In 2011 alone, the province produced over $8 billion worth of mine products, including coal, copper, gold, zinc, molybdenum, silver, lead, aggregates, industrial minerals and other mining products.

Klondex Mines (TSX: KDX; NYSE:KLDX) “Fundamentally, there's nothing wrong with the company. We are better positioned now – and with less risk – than when we were trading at our 52-week high.” President and CEO of Klondex Mines, Paul Huet, believes the re-balancing of the GDXJ has given investors a unique opportunity to buy shares of Klondex at a discount.

Ivanhoe Mines Ltd. is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. Its focus is on the pacific rim where it is in the process of developing several large mines, the principal one being the Oyu Tolgoi Project in Southern Mongolia 200 km east of Dalanzadgad. The Oyuu Tolgoi Project is considered one of the world's largest copper and gold porphyry deposits For development to happen at Oyuu Tolgoi, an agreement had to be made in which the Mongolian government (read: Chinese government) took a 34% stake in the project; the royalty arrangement it currently has with the Mongolian government (read: Chinese government) took years to reach which caused significant delays in project development. In this video the company proudly present itsel...
a trip to some old copper/iron mines on skirt mountain of vancouver island
We took a trip to Canada a bit ago and I wanted to share some footage of an abandoned mineshaft that we probably should not have entered. It seemed to go on forever and we didn't reach the end in this clip, but I have been to the end of it and the tunnel gets pretty small. Next we check out the cabin thats right on top of the mining claim. It's seen better days but wouldn't take much work to be usable once again. We join our good flannel clad friend Harvey for a visit. He's always fun and pretty vocal so I wanted to share a bit of the visit with everyone. I hope you enjoy these clips, it's a long video at 20 min but it's all over the place, enjoy.

Just one day after the tragic death of Ashley, a resident of Occupy Vancouver, and just hours after Mayor Robertson called for the end of the camp, the mood at the Vancouver Art Gallery was mournful, yet defiant. That energy carried on through the day as hundreds of protesters joined with indigenous people to oppose destructive mining practices on their territories. The Second Indigenous Assembly Against Mining and Pipelines called for the rally to coincide with a pro mining conference organized by the Canadian Aboriginal Mining Association.
The first Indigenous Assembly against Mining and Pipelines was held in Neskonlith, Secwepemc Territories. The second Indigenous Assembly is being planned in Vancouver, Coast Salish Territories to coincide with the pro-mining "Meeting Minds, Making Mines" Conference being held at the Pan Pacific Hotel from November 6-8th. The conference is sponsored by mining corporations and the Canadian Aboriginal Mineral Association who want to want to "sell" and push mining further into Indigenous communities. Brochure: http://www.aboriginalminerals.com/pdfs/CAMA-2011_W.pdf Indigenous communities from across the province are gathering in Vancouver Unceded Coast Salish Territories to oppose this conference and those corporations who profit off the destruction of the land. No mining, no pipelines...
