Atlin is the second most prolific producer of Placer Gold in British Columbia, after only the Caribou. It has produced several million ounces in the last hundred years. During this time there was an intensive search for the source of these rich placers. This search was concentrated in the current drainages that held the placers as this is where the sources are normally found. The BC Government conducted some satellite interpretation done by a Quaternary geologist that surprisingly indicated that the regional ice sheet had come from the south east rather that down the lakes from the north. This new model provides a transport mechanism for the gold to have traveled from the adjacent “misfit” valley of the Upper O’Donnell River and into the rich placers of Spruce, Otter, Wright and Pine Creeks.
It is believed that there are intrusive bodies on the claim group that are shedding gold that has accumulated in the local placers of the Upper O’Donnell. Several independent Laboratories have tested the gold and concluded that it has not traveled far from its source.
In the fall of 2003, the Atlin Targeted Geoscience Initiate (ATGI) concluded a million dollar study conducted jointly by the Federal and Provincial Geological Survey Branches. The ATGI report can be seen at the link below:
There is a subtle string of Electromagnetic lows anomalies that arc across the claim area.
