Greenwood, BC area Homestead above Boundary Falls
Music by Sanders Bohlke - http://www.youtube.com/sandersbohlke used, gratefully, with permission The homestead is situated in the Boundary Country, in British Columbia's southern interior, high above and accessible from the Trans Canada Trail and Highway 3, (The Crows Nest) near Boundary Falls, between the city of Greenwood BC (Canada's smallest city), and the village of Midway BC. I don't pretend to know the history behind or the intended meaning of Sanders song, "Search and Destroy", but for me it seems to give voice to the forgotten lives and abandoned memories that seem to hang heavy in the silence which engulfs the old homestead. It's a great song from a talented artist. For more info on Sanders go to http://www.youtube.com/sandersbohlke

#7 Ghost Camp Found,  1900-1949  in BC's Boundary Country.
http://BcGHOSTtowns.com This is not "The City of Paris Ghost Town" It is in fact the #7 mine site and is one of nicest little abandoned mine camps found in it's normal state of decay... Here is the MINEFILE info for the #7 The No. 7 mine is on the claim of the same name (Lot 623), on a ridge crest at the elevation of 1370 metres, 3.3 kilometres east of the confluence of McCarren and Gidon creeks, 7.5 kilometres southeast of Greenwood. Access to the property is 2.4 kilometres travelling southerly and up hill by winding dirt road from the McCarren Creek road. The Lexington (082ESE041) and City of Paris (082ESE042) lie 2.5 kilometres to the southeast. The intermittent operations of the No. 7 mine from 1901 to 1945 produced a total of 13,748 tonnes of ore yielding 92.4 kilograms of gold, 3110 kilograms of silver, 97 tonnes of lead, and 6.2 tonnes of zinc. The potential of No. 7 was recognized early in the Greenwood camp and the claim was Crown granted in 1895 to J. Schofield. By 1897, a 40-metre deep inclined shaft was developed on the claim to service 60 metres of underground drifting. At the approximate time of final closing of the mine 50 years later, in 1945, the mine workings comprised a 100-metre inclined shaft, adit levels at 12 and 90 metres, and intermediate levels at 30 and 55 metres. Old mine maps show that the underground work on these four levels totals about 1580 metres. The 90-metre adit level is open from portal to face, a distance of about 580 metres, but the other levels are partly caved southeast of the inclined shaft. Other workings include an adit drift 40 metres northwest of the 12-metre No. 1 adit, a large number of surface pits, and a deep trench along the vein from which some underhand stoping was done. The mine is developed on a quartz vein on a major southeasterly trending boundary fault between Upper Paleozoic Knob Hill Group on the northeast and Attwood Group on the southwest. Contained in part within the fault zone, and hosting this vein, are a schistose quartz feldspar intrusion and serpentinite. A variety of young Tertiary dikes have invaded, and are superimposed on, the vein structure. The quartz vein at the mine site has been traced for a strike length of more than 300 metres. The vein ranges from 10 centimetres to 1.5 metres wide and dips 40 to 65 degrees northeast, having dike rocks or chloritic schists of the Knob Hill Group on the hanging wall and highly sheared talc-carbonate rocks of the serpentinite body on the footwall. Mineralization consists of pyrite, sphalerite and some galena dispersed in blue-grey quartz along the central portion of the vein. The most productive part of the vein was southeast of the inclined shaft above the 55-metre level. A large number of northeasterly striking faults displace the vein. Displacements along these faults range from a few feet to almost 60 metres. The maximum displacement was measured on the fault exposed in the southeast end of the 90-metre level and on the surface 60 metres southeast of the long open cut. The vein has not been located beyond this fault. Movement along these faults has been largely post mineral. Evidence of some pre-mineral movement is furnished by unbroken vein quartz seams and lenses, up to 20 centimetres by 3 metres, in the fault zone exposed at the southeast end of the 90-metre level. Subsidiary faults of small displacement are part of this same fault zone, and offset both vein and the post mineral quartz trachyte dike. Thus this single fault zone has been the locus of both pre- and post-mineral movements. The No. 7 fault zone is an ancient structure believed to be a possible continuation of the Chesaw thrust in Washington state. The serpentinite is part of a disrupted Paleozoic ophiolite complex. Because of the ductile nature of these rocks, the belt has become a tectonically active zone and the locus of much shearing, thrusting, igneous intrusion and vein mineralization. The common Mg-Fe carbonate (listwanite) alteration and serpentinization are believed to be related to major thrusting of the ophiolitic rocks during the Jurassic. In the early Tertiary these thrusts were re-activated by a tectonic compression directed subparallel to the developing northerly elongated graben structures. Igneous activity at the same time is believed to be related to numerous vein deposits. No ore reserve estimate is available for this property. Cool stuff! I would like to take some pictures of the old cabins. Thanks for sharing! Thanks to a local resident for help and directions Check back next summer for a video on what is left of the City of Paris BC. Thanks again to David, Snuffy & Jim British Columbia Historian John Mitchell

Bye to Bill Barlee,  Gold Trails and Ghost Towns
http://www.BcGhostTowns.com We are very sorry to inform our visitors that Bill Barlee passed away last Thursday, June 14 at the age of 80. Bill was the guy who brought Canada West Magazine to life in the late 1960s, and many books, including one called Gold Creeks and Ghost Towns. Along the way, he was elected to the government and was for a time Minister of Tourism. His television show, "Gold Trails and Ghost Towns", was a nation wide hit for many years. Bill had a way to excite you with the story's of regular people and if that wasn't enough, you could always count on a hand full of Nuggets to grab you attention! Without Bills influence we would not know as much as we do of this amassing history of our British Columbia. We are big fans of his works... Our best wishes to his family and the loss we all share. I was inspired by Bill to take up the History, collecting of antiques and artifacts. I now use this knowledge to teach a past we can be very proud of. Thanks for giving me, my History passion.

Anyox: The Ghost Town
The 1914-1935 Ghost Town of Anyox was one of the largest copper smelting towns in the British Empire. The mine shut down in 1935 and a large fire burned a lot of the wooden structure in 1942. Fortunately there were a lot of concrete and brick structure that survived. The town is very remote as it is 125 north of Prince Rupert on BC's Northcoast. It is privately owned but UNBC has access to deliver tours to the site. if you are interested in visiting this amazing historical site then contact Rob Bryce at UNBC Continuing Studies [email protected] https://blogs.unbc.ca/unbcexptour/

Led by First Lieutenant Alexandra Borza. Lyrics Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword; His truth is marching on. Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on. I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps; They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps; I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps, His day is marching on. I have read His fiery gospel writ in rows of burnished steel! "As ye deal with my condemners, so with you My grace shall deal! Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel, " Since God is marching on. He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat; Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him; be jubilant, my feet! Our God is marching on. In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me; As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free!

Some writers discount settlements that were abandoned as a result of a natural or human-made disaster, using the term only to describe settlements which were deserted because they were no longer economically viable; T. Lindsey Baker, author of Ghost Towns of Texas, defines a ghost town as "a town for which the reason for being no longer exists".[1] Some believe that any settlement with visible tangible remains should not be called a ghost town;[2] others say, conversely, that a ghost town should contain the tangible remains of buildings.[3] Whether or not the settlement must be completely deserted, or may contain a small population, is also a matter for debate.[2] Generally, though, the term is used in a looser sense, encompassing any and all of these definitions. The American author Lambert Florin's preferred definition of a ghost town was simply "a shadowy semblance of a former self". Factors leading to abandonment of towns include depleted natural resources, economic activity shifting elsewhere, railroads and roads bypassing or no longer accessing the town, human intervention, disasters, massacres, wars, and the shifting of politics or fall of empires.[5] A town can also be abandoned when it is part of an exclusion zone due to natural or man-made causes. Ghost towns may result when the single activity or resource that created a boomtown (e.g., nearby mine, mill or resort) is depleted or the resource economy undergoes a "bust" (e.g., catastrophic resource price collapse). Boomtowns can often decrease in size as fast as they initially grew. Sometimes, all or nearly the entire population can desert the town, resulting in a ghost town. The dismantling of a boomtown can often occur on a planned basis. Mining companies nowadays will create a temporary community to service a mine site, building all the accommodation shops and services, and then remove it as the resource is worked out. A gold rush would often bring intensive but short-lived economic activity to a remote village, only to leave a ghost town once the resource was depleted. In some cases, multiple factors may remove the economic basis for a community; some former mining towns on U.S. Route 66 suffered both mine closures when the resources were depleted and loss of highway traffic as US 66 was diverted away from places like Oatman, Arizona onto a more direct path. The Middle East has many ghost towns that were created when the shifting of politics or the fall of empires caused capital cities to be socially or economically non-viable, such as Ctesiphon.

Highway 3 Eastbound in Winter - part 3 of 4 - time lapse
This series of videos is of Highway 3, known as the Crowsnest Highway. The Highway goes across Southern British Columbia and Alberta from Hope, BC to Medicine Hat, AB. The name "the Crowsnest Highway" comes from the Crowsnest Pass at the continental divide at the Alberta-British Columbia border through which the highway travels. There is much history along the highway. Most of the towns that the highway passes through, or near, had their origins in mining. Most of the towns towards the Western end of the highway had gold claims; some in the Monashee range of mountains had silver and galena deposits. In the Crowsnest Pass, the towns were based around coal mining. This series shows the highway from Hope, BC through to the intersection with Alberta Highway 22 which is a few kilometers past the AB-BC border. This third part starts at the town of Greenwood and ends at the town of Salmo. From Greenwood, the highway climbs over some high ground and descends to the City of Grand Forks. At Grand Forks it becomes quite apparent as to just how close highway 3 is to the U.S. border at times. The last bend in the highway just before entering Grand Forks, the highway is less than 300 meters (1000 feet) from the border. And immediately after that bend is the shortest highway in British Columbia, highway 41, which is only 1.29 km (0.80 miles) long. After Grand Forks the terrain changes somewhat as the highway leaves the central, somewhat dry, region of British Columbia. Even by Christina Lake the terrain and vegetation seems to change a bit. But as soon as the highway heads east from Christina Lake the change becomes quite dramatic as it heads up to the Bonanza Pass. The Bonanza Pass is also known as the Blueberry-Paulson Pass and is the pass over the Monashee mountains and informally divides the boundary country to the west from the Kootenays to the east. The summit of the pass is subtle is one high point among a number of rolling hills on a plateau region. In this region is also one end of highway 3B which leads to the Southern Kootenay region. The highway then descends to the City of Castlegar. Castlegar is in the Selkirk range of mountains and is the site where the Kootenay river flows into the Columbia river. The highway then climbs again reaching a high point at the Bombi summit. From there, it descends again (naturally) to meet the other end of highway 3B near Meadows, BC, and then continues on to the town of Salmo. This was filmed on February 8, 2011 and February 20, 2012. The music used is Jigsaw Falling Into Place and Nude both by Radiohead.

Quick stop at the old town site of Blakeburn. A Coal mine from the 1920's that supplied Coal for the KVR. From this mine and town site the coal was transported by aerial tram down to the town of Coalmont on the Tulameen river. Not much is left of this ghost town, but you can still see some evidence of some old buildings and the mine itself.

R. DEAN Monenco Analytical Laboratories, 2023-2nd Ave. SE, Calgary, Alta., Canada T2E 6Kl December 20, 1983 Covert Basin is located 6 km due north of Oliver and it contains an example of the fluviatile type of surficial U deposit . The deposit occurs in an ancient meander (oxbow), which is now a valley margin swamp, on the flood plain of the Okanagan River where it has eroded into a glacial terrace. Uraniferous groundwaters are infiltrating from side drainages into the porous terrace and uranium deposits occur where the uranium is adsorbed and probably reduced, in this case, in some peaty layers. The deposit contains about 30 t of U308 Triuranium octoxide (U3O8) is a compound of uranium. It is present as an olive green to black, odorless solid. It is one of the more popular forms of yellowcake and is shipped between mills and refineries in this form. Triuranium octoxide occurs naturally as the olive-green-colored mineral pitchblende. U3O8 is readily produced from UF6 and has potential long-term stability in a geologic environment. In the presence of oxygen (O2), uranium dioxide (UO2) is oxidized to U3O8, whereas uranium trioxide (UO3) loses oxygen at temperatures above 500 °C and is reduced to U3O8. The compound can be produced by any one of three primary chemical conversion processes, involving either uranium tetrafluoride (UF4) or uranyl fluoride (UO2F2) as intermediates, under normal environmental conditions, U3O8 is one of the most kinetically and thermodynamically stable forms of uranium and also because it is the form of uranium found in nature. Its particle density is 8.3 g cm−3.

Abandoned Mine Camp
Exploring the site of an abandoned mining operation; sleeping areas, washrooms, offices, work shops, and more. It was very awesome to check out and see how nature was reclaiming the site. Definitely will be revisiting this site as the weather gets warmer.
