Introduction:

CaribooPlacersCEO copy

This site is owned and operated by the Cariboo Placers Mining & Exploration Co. (hereafter referred to as the CPMEC). It is geared toward promoting the sale of placer ground identified on the map above within the red outlined area. The property is located in the northwestern region of the famed Cariboo Gold Mining District of central British Columbia, first discovered back in the 1860’s when the historic mining town of Barkerville started production.

The placer ground is situated along the Beaver Pass road now commonly referred to as the 2400 Road  or the Ketchum Creek road and extends from 9.5 km at Langford (Tregillus) Lake to 16 km and covers both sides of Tregillus Creek which flows out of Langford Lake at the north end. Aurafino Creek joins Tregillus Creek and then runs a short distance of approximately 7 km to where it flows into the Willow River (upper right hand corner of map).

The Willow River is the main drainage system that begins in the town of Wells where the headwaters flow out of the famed Jack O’ Clubs Lake. It is at that point where it joins with Williams Creek flowing from Barkerville approximately 8 km upstream.

The Beaver Pass valley begins along Highway 26 (Barkerville Hwy) 50 km east of Quesnel and 25 km west of the town of Wells. It is believed by geologists (as contained in the Duling Report dating back to the 1930’s) to have been part of the original river channel that drained the eastern headwaters of Lightning Creek which now runs westward from above historic Stanley and connects with the Cottonwood River to then flow into the Fraser River north of the city of Quesnel.

All of this region of the Cariboo Mining District has been rich placer producing ground since the early 1870’s. In the case of Beaver Pass much new ground has become available due to recent logging activity in the area which removed large tracts of the old growth timber and made exploration and development much more of a viable reality.

The Cariboo Placers property has excellent access roads and bridges in place throughout its tenures thanks to the logging industry’s efforts, thus providing two of the essential prerequisites for exploration and discovery leading to profitable mining ventures.

Another major feature of the property is the fact that the surface gravels are where the bulk of gold is found and therefore there’s no added expense of having to remove vast amounts of overburden before beginning operations. The gravels, ranging in depths to twenty meters contain little in the way of clay deposits and are easily processed using the traditional excavator, loader and shaker plant or trommel method .

Water sources for washing gravels is plentiful around Langford/Tregillus Lake and there are year round flowing side creeks that run down the slopes from the upper benches as well as surface water that can be utilized. Langford (aka Tregillus) Lake offers a vast source of continuous water for any major washing facilities plus Tregillus Creek, flowing in an easterly direction along the valley bottom and passing through the centre of the property is a high volume, year round source of water.

This ground is best suited for a large scale operation where the owner would have the required equipment to dig and transfer pay gravels to a central area such as Langford Lake for processing.

THE PROPERTY IS CURRENTLY FOR SALE AS ONE COMPLETE UNIT OF 41 CONTIGUOUS CELLS.

ASKING PRICE: $377,000.00. 

The total area amounts to 797 hectares or approximately 1,969 acres of ground.

All testing to date indicates the presence of gold and PMG elements with the gold showing a consistent 93% purity, the highest throughout the Cariboo region.

*** PLEASE NOTE THAT THE GROUND DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY MINING EQUIPMENT.

2012 TESTING PROGRAM

During the summer of 2012 Cariboo Placers conducted a substantive JV testing program on former Tenure # 795862 (now 1026145). See photos below:

The test site is located approximately 6 km downstream on the north side of Tregillus Creek at 16 km on the 2400 Road (aka Beaver Pass road). Tregillus Creek runs out of Langford Lake (shown in the website header above) where it joins with Aurofina Creek and proceeds to flow easterly where in joins the famous Willow River at 17 km. The ground on the north side of Tregillus Creek has long been recognized as containing very fine gold of high purity (ranging in the 90 to 93%).

Testing materials being dumped next to the wash plant  on site using a Terex  TA 30 articulating rock truck.

Test gravels are loaded into a vibrating grizzly that separates the large rocks prior to emptying into the conveyor hopper for transport to the shaker plant.

A vibrating screen plant with spray bars washes the gravel and reduces it down to 1/2″ and smaller and that is collected in the hopper below where it then is funnelled into the large gold concentrator.

Concentrator&Sluice

As well as the gold concentrator a 20′ x 30″ sluice has also been added to the washing process in order to ensure that both the traditional and the newer versions of processing the gravels are checked and compared.

DSC_0005 copy 2

The testing program utilized two gold concentrators manufactured by Oro Industries out of California. The larger of the two is a centrifuge concentrator that rotates at approximately 750 revolutions per minute and acting on the centrifugal principle captures the heavier components within the gravels and holds them in place until the speed of the revolving drum and the volume of water is adjusted so that they may be released after the washing process is completed. 

GlennWashing

After the concentrates were removed from the large concentrator they were further refined by running them through a Multi-Helix Gold Spiral which then separates the concentrates down to black sands, magnetics and gold.

 

The Helix Gold Spiral works like a reverse screw and as the concentrates are spun in the revolving drum they work their way back up while at the same time the water washes all of the lighter material away leaving only the valuable magnetics, black sand and gold all of which runs out and into a holding tank.

Magnetic material “mags” shown clustered about a magnet and taken from one pan of refined concentrates. Assays done of these concentrates on other tenures owned by Cariboo Placers by Eco Tech Laboratory Ltd. out of Kamloops, B.C. indicate  a strong presence of gold (8.75 g/t) or 0.255 (oz/t) as well as showings of silver, palladium and platinum. A full spectrum analysis of all the PMG elements contained within these magnetic materials is still required in order to ascertain the full extent of additional rare earth elements.

A portion of the “Aura Fina” or fine gold that came out of the concentrates ran through the Helix Spiral. The gold is uniform in size and of a brilliant yellow lustre indicating that it is of similar quality to that historically recovered within the same immediate area along this section of the Beaver Pass.
