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.
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...

Canada Day long weekend 2016, took a trip to Fort Steele BC. Finally got a chance to visit the Nip & Tuck Placer Gold mine nestled deep in the mountains. Steve Lathem was nice enough to show us his rock collection and some large nuggets from the claim. We then went down to Boulder Creek to do some prospecting. I got to test out my Gold Bug 2 metal detector too. I would recommend driving up to the Nip & Tuck Goldmine and take the tour!!

Subscribe to Motherboard Radio today! http://apple.co/1DWdc9d In October of last year Motherboard gained access to a massive, secretive Bitcoin mine housed within a repurposed factory in the Liaoning Province in rural northeast China. This is the infrastructure that keeps the digital currency’s decentralized network up and running, and its operators are profiting big time. The mine we visited is just one of six sites owned by a secretive group of four people, part of a colossal mining operation that, as of our visit, cumulatively generated 4,050 bitcoins a month, equivalent to a monthly gross of $1.5 million.

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...

Thanks for everyone's support so far!
