Description

NEWTON CREEK $7500

21.0 hectares / 51.893 acres. BC placer tenure 1027791. Location and access: The Newton Creek property is accessible from the Town of Coalmont via River Road North which runs East-West from the Town of Princeton 12km to the East. When the Tulameen river is crossed in Coalmont via the Blakeburn bridge follow Blakeburn Road for 6 km to the junction of Arrastra FSR (the left fork), and proceed south for 4 km to the mouth of Newton Creek. The property is 400 metres west of this point. The west side of the property may be accessed by turning right off Arrastra FSR onto an un-named FSR at approx.. 2 km past the fork. The property encompasses approximately 600 meters of creek frontage on both the east and west banks of Newton Creek and is completely underlain by crown land. The claim centre is at latitude 49.460280 longitude -120.748110.

Placer geology of Newton Creek is described by W. Ash, part of a 1983 assessment work program (ARIS 12330): The long Oligocene period of erosion was on obvious ideal environment for the buildup, on bedrock, of secondary nugget placers. The ratio of nuggets to fine gold, in the Tulameen district is uncommonly high (fine (flour) gold in recent placers normally overwhelmingly outweighs the coarse gold)…Extremely rich nugget placers have been found not only in the creeks of the Tulameen area, but on benches up to several hundred feet above the valley floors. The difficulty in prospecting, testing and mining increases with elevation above the creek levels. The costs involved (particularly before modern diesel and electric pumps became readily available) in bringing water to the “dry” bench placers were prohibitive. Highbench prospecting has, therefore, never been popular. On the other hand there is no reason to suppose that all rich placers are relegated to elevations within 300 feet of the valley bottoms The rich ground on Newton Creek with its nugget gold was found at an elevation exceeding 3000 feet above sea level and it is probable that rich “protected” placers may exist to elevations exceeding 4,500 feet in this region.

Warning - This property is offered for mining purposes only and ownership of the title to it does not include ownership of the surface rights or the right to use the surface for residential or recreational purposes.
