Description

MONASHEE CREEK Placer Gold Claim for Sale - $5,500

62.06 Hectares / 153.35 Acres. BC placer tenure 1028487. The property is located 15 km. southeast “as the crow flies” from the community of Cherryville, British Columbia Canada, or 56 km. east of the City of Vernon. From Cherryville, proceed 13 km. southeast on Vernon-Slocan Highway #6. Thence, proceed left (easterly) on South Fork Forest Service Road (FSR), which crosses Cherry Creek. Continue on South Fork FSR for ~15 km. The claim centre is at latitude 50.195720° longitude -118.363310°.The property offers over 1100 metres of creek frontage per side. Railroad Creek confluences Monashee Creek at the southeast section of the claim. The property occupies an area held by a former legacy claim (#356267), held under a single owner for 17 years and 3 years under the current owner, and is underlain by crown land. Several areas within the claim are suitable for camping. This site would generally accommodate any scale of placer gold mining. Also, unlike many steep areas along the Monashee, the property offers a good amount of flat lying, accessible areas.

From Minfile: Past Producer Summaries Monashee Creek Placer - Minfile 082LSE059 and Cherry Creek Placer – Minfile 082LSE013:

The Monashee Creek Placer deposit is located on Monashee Creek (Monashee Creek was previously known as the south fork of Cherry Creek and there is possibly some confusion between the placer activity on these two creeks).

Bedrock in this area comprises volcanic and sedimentary rocks of the Devonian to Triassic Harper Ranch Group.

Placer deposits on this creek have been worked since 1876 when it was discovered, until 1945 when the last production was recorded. The deposits have been worked by hand, by an elaborate system of flumes, by hydraulics and later by gasoline shovels. Benches 30 metres above the creek were mined in 1876. From 1890 to 1896, 15 people were working on the creek taking out about $2.00 per day. There was little or no activity between 1905 and 1922, but activity was renewed in 1925.

In 1932, several placer miners were working along Monashee Creek and they reported small recoveries. In 1940 and 1941, mining of gold-bearing gravel in an old channel below the creek bed took place.

Gravels from this creek are reported to have produced 6749 grams of gold (217 ounces) during the period from 1936 to 1945 (Bulletin 28, page 63)

The valleys were filled with gravel after the retreat of ice and remnants of these gravels have been left in benches up to 91.4 metres high, by the recent stream. Lenticular, irregular gravel beds occur in 12 to 15 metres of a sandy unit. This unit rests on water- worn black slates and shales cut by quartz veins. Boulder clay overlies the sandy unit. Placer gold occurs in the preglacial gravels over several kilometres.

The gold has a low average fineness of 700. Nuggets up to 264 grams (8.5 ounces) have been found. The gold is of 2 types: light, flat, scaly particles, and less commonly, coarse gold pieces. Most production came from the confluence of Cherry Creek and Monashee Creek, upstream to 5.6 kilometres above the confluence. Production totals 155,158 grams of gold (4989 ounces) (Bulletin 28, page 63).

Lost mine: In the 1870’s, an outcrop of silver ore on the south side of Monashee Creek was discovered. The ore was so rich and the mineralization massive, that the ore was valued at more than $1500/ton at the time (more than $45,000/ton today). The vein was mined and thought exhausted but some years later it was rediscovered and new ore, with samples being nearly pure silver, began shipping out. Miners D. McIntyre and L.W. Riske attempted to relocate the deposit and continuity for some 20 years but did not locate it. The location of the mine may be inferred by old workings, should they remain. The vein may still await re-discovery at a location described as a steep draw of Monashee Creek near Old Cherryville. (Based on information for Gold Creeks and Ghost Towns, pp. 61, N.L. Barlee, Hancock House 1970).
