1 Day reservation for professional level prospecting adventure

$ 100 USD

This is our premier trip! Not for the faint of heart or those not in good physical form! Travel with our entire staff of three guides into the majestic depths of the Olivine Creek Canyon affectionatly called the Nugget Valley by our crew! I am not sure where to start about this place, my heart belongs to it, I do reccomend at least a 2 day booking for this adventure and preferably 3-4 days to fully experience the opportuinities available in this incredibly rare gem of a gold claim. Your trip will start with a meet in Princeton British Columbia with myself Gino Del-Ciotto and my staff. We will advise you on what to pack when you contact us but packing lightly is highly recommended. We will orientate you on what we have in store for you do a gear check and make sure we have all we need, then we will head off in our bush truck towards Coalmont B.C. stopping at any of the locations that are available in the novice and intermediate level trips. Once we pass through coalmont we will head 18 kilometers into the bush to the head of the Nugget valley claim. From there we will suit up with our large back packs we will help you lighten your load as best as we can or if you need a few extra comforts we do have a young lad happy to pack for you ta 20 dollars per hour plus gratuity. We then head down to our rustic shelter complete with bush kitchen including a coleman propane stove, lanterns, cots, wood stove and coolers to store our food. there is an outhouse  at the rear of the shelter. It is not much but it keeps us warm and dry. once we have set camp up about 1 mile down the hill at the shelter if time allows we will head the last 1000 feet down a fairly steep path with the assistance of ropes all the way down to the creek. Once there you may prospect any way you wish, at the outset gold splits or find your own keep your own rules are decided upon and we work together to find as much as possible. the equiopment is all supplied including pumps, gas, and anything else required to mine gold except for metal detectors which must be brought in by you. You may ask what makes tis place so special well aside from the very coarse gold found on every trip with nuggets hitting weights up to 18 grams you have the opportunity to find one of the rarest precious metal specimens on the planet. Large platinum nuggets! Platinum generally is granular in size like table salt or slightly better, but on the Olivine Creek that is not the case! Behemoths up to 8 grams have been found on the creek! I have personally sold these specimens to rare mineral collectors for over 1000 dollars per gram! The platinum is coarse and almost always bigger thanother locations in the area and is always worth at least double melt value on the collectors market or about $3000/ ounce minimum value! This is not all there are garnets of ruby red color and in 1911 the first jewellery grade diamond ever found in Canada was found on this creek, a mystery we have yet to solve. The bedrock is shallow less than 5 feet of over burden in most spots or if you have the time to book a week we will open up one of the deeper honey holes for you noted for the very large gold they often hold. Expensive you may ask? 50% of our clients break even or near even and 15% make a profit on this trip on average! We do guarantee a minimum of one gram a day in paltinum and gold combined per guest! If you don't get there on your own share or finds we will top you up from our own pokes! catering is also available on this trip for a fee of $50/day per person. we will cook for you and take great care of you at camp while you listen to stories from our prospecting partner Morris who has been in the business for 40 years as well he has worked as a northern trapper and practiced the arts of the medicine man! For the gold prospecting adventure of a life time with people who are just plain fun to work with in a world class creek that carries the opportunity to find world class rare platinum specimens and big gold simply call and book with us and leave your deposit. Catering must be paid upfront 2 weeks prior to departure.
