Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd. is engaged in the exploration and production of precious metals from mineral tenures located in the Cariboo Mining District in east-central British Columbia.

The Cariboo Gold Belt has had a rich and extensive history starting with the discovery of placer gold in the 1860’s. Recorded production from the Company’s property and surrounding area is approximately 3.2 million ounces of placer gold and 1.3 million ounces of lode gold averaging 0.40 oz/t gold from mainly mesothermal quartz vein mineralization, and 0.60 oz/t from sulphide replacement style mineralization. Mining of these deposits took place during the periods 1933 to 1967 and 1983 to 1987.

Barkerville Gold Mines has attracted approximately $55 million in new investment since the beginning of 2015 and now has a technically and financially supportive major shareholder base consisting of Eric Sprott (19%), Osisko Mining (17%) and Osisko Gold Royalties (16%).

Business Plan

The Vision: Build a sustainable, low impact, high return, gold mining company in British Columbia’s historic Cariboo Mining District

Short Term Goal: Production from Bonanza Ledge and BC Vein from 2017 – 2021

Primary Objective: Define an economic resource and reserve base which allows production growth and a new on site processing facility from 2021 onwards

Projects in Hand

Cariboo Gold Project, Central British Columbia

Barkerville Gold presently controls 211,900 hectares (2,119 sq. km) of mineral tenures, including three historic groups of contiguous Crown-Granted mineral claims, namely the Cariboo Gold Quartz Group, Island Mountain Group, and Mosquito Creek Group. This large block of contiguous mineral tenures is roughly centered around the town of Wells, which is located approximately 85 km east of Quesnel, British Columbia. This contiguous block represents about 75% of the complete mineral tenures package.

The Company's QR Mine & Mill are located approximately 58 km southeast of Quesnel, on a separate group of mineral tenures. Outside of these areas, the Company has a further 5 blocks of mineral tenures located in and around these two areas. The mineral tenures encompass seven past producing hard rock mines, including the QR Mine & Mill.
