Description

TRANQUILLE RIVER Placer Gold Claim $2000

-Excellent road access and underlain by crown land; camp anywhere onsite 

-74,000+ grams have been mined with a wide range of fineness, up to 980

-Approx. 530 metres of river frontage, per side

20.38 hectares / 50.36 acres. BC placer tenure 1049768. The property is located 28 km. west-northwest of the City of Kamloops, British Columbia. From Kamloops, starting at the intersection of Airport Road and Tranquille Road, proceed west for 6 km., turning right onto Tranquille-Criss Creek Road, and continuing for some ~36 km. directly to the site which is intersected by this road. Park onsite. The claim centre is at latitude 50.906140° longitude -120.716890°

The river was discovered as gold-bearing in 1852.

Placer gold production in the Kamloops map area was first recorded from Tranquille River(092INE106) between 1876 and 1880. Total combined placer gold production from Tranquille River, Criss Creek(092INE104) and Lanes Creek(092INE054) totalled 76,101 grams.

With Criss and Lanes Creeks being recorded and subtracted from combined production, it is determined that Tranquille Rivers production was the most prolific:

Criss Creek: 1,586 grams

Lanes Creek: 124 grams

Tranquille River: 74,391 grams

At the time of discovery and for several subsequent seasons, the gutter of the creek was the main focus of placer production, until mineralized placer channels were discovered in high benches. This was probably due to a geological melting event, forming a rough delta at the elevation of these benches, 10 – 13 metres higher than the present course of the river. Erosion and spring runoff account for the presence of gold in the creek bottoms where mining occurred. Remaining unmined pay channels at higher elevations are thought to be very promising. Little to no large scale placer mining has occurred here since 1945. Tourism Kamloops continues to promote goldpanning opportunities on the Tranquille. (This info is available in the softcover book Gold Panning British Columbia, Lewis/Campany, pp. 166-167)
