In late 2002 Eagle Plains completed staking and received 100% title to an 8-unit (486 acres) claim block located in the Wildhorse River area, 30 km northeast of Cranbrook, BC. The Wildhorse was the site of British Columbia’s third largest placer gold rush, and saw extensive placer mining activity beginning in 1864, with over 1,500,000 ounces of gold extracted from its gravels. Active placer mining operations are currently in place along the river, though no major hard-rock source has ever been identified. The claims acquired by EPL are located near the upstream limit of historic placer mining operations.
This project is currently under option.
