Description

BRITTON CREEK DISCOVERY Platinum Gold Placer Claim $8,000

-The property is part of the original discovery site.

-Platinum occurs up to 1.45 grams per ton in bedrock, directly on the property.

-2.5 km. of creek frontage on both sides of Britton Creek.

-Underlain by crown land, camp anywhere. Easy car access.

-Platinum was thrown back in the creek when originally mined; gold was recovered only by crude methods at the time.

83.88 hectares / 259.09 acres. BC placer tenures 1037120, 1041548, 1049507 and 1050473. The property is located 32 km. west-northwest of the Town of Princeton, British Columbia. The property is completely underlain by crown land and features ~2 km. creek frontage, per side.The claim boundary is located 40 metres north of River Road North (Tulameen River Road), just past the creek mouth and bridge. From Princeton, proceed west on River Road North directly to the site, or to access the claim via the upper bench, a forest service road terminates into tenure 1050473. The claim centre is at latitude  49.531110° longitude -120.913750°.

Old workings are still present in this area. This is part of the original mine where gold was mined on discovery in 1885. Crude methods were used at the time and platinum, thought to be worthless, was often thrown back in the creek. In 1926, prospector Garnet Sootheran again found a “considerable amount” of placer gold and platinum.

The Ridge Zone (Minfile 092HNE207), a mineralized platinum showing with values up to 1.445 grams per ton platinum, also occurs within the property boundary:

The Ridge Zone platinum-chromite showing outcrops along a northwest-trending ridge on the southern slopes of Grasshopper Mountain, 10.5 kilometres west-southwest of the town of Tulameen.

The ridge is underlain by dunite and peridotite of the Early Jurassic Tulameen Ultramafic Complex, a zoned Alaskan-type intrusive complex. The dunite contains relatively abundant chromite in a zone trending northwest for 300 metres and varying up to 100 metres in width. Chromite comprises up to 20 per cent of the dunite in this zone (Assessment Report 17170). The mineral forms irregular lenses up to 20 centimetres long and 10 centimetres wide, fracture fillings up to 2 centimetres wide and primary layers of magmatic origin up to 15 centimetres thick.

Elevated platinum values are found in the southern half of this zone of chromite mineralization, with assays of up to 1.445 grams per tonne platinum (Assessment Report 17170, page 10). Analyses of eight samples taken in the southern half averaged 0.418 gram per tonne platinum (Assessment Reports 15516, 17170). Seven samples from the northern half assayed up to 20 percent chromium, yet yielded less than 0.050 gram per tonne platinum (Assessment Report 15516, page 28, Map 2).

This occurrence was sampled and mapped by Newmont Exploration of Canada Ltd. in 1986 and Tiffany Resources Incorporated in 1987.

Britton (Eagle) Creek flows southeast for 11.5 kilometres before entering the Tulameen River, 10.5 kilometres west-southwest of the town of Tulameen.

The lower part of the creek descends rapidly into the Tulameen River through a narrow V-shaped canyon, 4 kilometres long. The upper part of the creek, and its various tributaries, flow through broader, flaring valleys. The stream contains gravel deposits of limited extent, especially in the lower sections. Above the canyon, the gravels are deeper and more widespread.

Coarse gold and platinum were recovered near the mouth of the creek (Geological Survey of Canada Memoir 26, page 135). These deposits were prospected and mined as early as 1885.

Bill Barlee writes in the 1973 Gold Creeks and Ghost Towns that “it is an intruiging prospect and to look for paystreaks where the original miners couldn’t reach”.

Most of Britton Creek is staked however very little gold and platinum has been reported to be found from the upper reaches. Most literature references the 1st 2 kilometres from the mouth upstream as being prospective today. This rare property largely encompasses this.
