MCKEE CREEK Placer Gold Claim for Sale $7000

98.69 hectares / 243.87 acres. BC placer tenures 1056800, 1056729. The property is intersected by road and is 100% underlain by crown land. It covers a ~2.5km section of McKee Creek, on both sides and a bridge to the east of the property offers vehicle crossing to access both sides. From Atlin, proceed south on Warm Bay Rd. for ~13 km. to the property. The claim centre is at latitude 59.462048° longitude -133.586021°.


McKee Creek flows west and southwest into Atlin Lake about 14 kilometres south of the community of Atlin. The creek is about 12 kilometres long and has been worked primarily in the middle-third section of its length. Hydraulic mining was started in 1903 and accounted for most of the gold recovered from McKee Creek. Some underground work was also done on the creek in the mid-1930s. From 1898 to 1945, approximately 1,369,123 grams of gold were recovered from the creek making it the 5th largest producer in the Atlin Camp (Bulletin 28).

The creek flows over primarily mafic greenstone of the upper Mississippian to Permian Nakina Formation (Cache Creek Complex) and upper Mississippian to Permian ultramafic rocks (Cache Creek Complex). Cherts and argillites of the Mississippian to Triassic Kedahda Formation (Cache Creek Complex) overlie the Nakina Formation and are exposed at higher elevations. There is also a small exposure midway down the creek of quartz veins within a shear zone hosted in chert and near a small diorite plug (see Harvey, 104N 117).

The stratigraphy of McKee Creek consists of a thick till overlying a 30 metre thick glacial-fluvial sequence. Underlying this is a layer of coarse boulders which overlays the auriferous channel gravels. The gold can be very coarse, and as elsewhere in Atlin, it is found in fractures in highly weathered bedrock down to a depth of 1.2 to 1.8 metres.

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.

Asking $7000 for 100%. Financing is available, no credit checks. 10% discount for seniors, veterans or military.
