Holloway Bar Placer Mine - Placer Gold Mining on McDame Creek in Northern British Columbia
Where are we?
Holloway Bar is located on McDame Creek in Northern BC's beautiful Cassiar Mountains. McDame Creek is where one of BC's largest solid gold nuggets (73 ounces!) was found in 1877 - just downstream from our Holloway Bar project.
Winter is a long, cold, dark, unforgiving time of the year in Northern Canada. Those living with extreme winter conditions know the risks and hazards and take measures to successfully contend with the dangers. However, sometimes its only our property that has to stay behind in the dark, awaiting our return in warmer times - but these things often need help and preparation to emerge unscathed. Preparation is the key - and the last week I spent on Holloway Bar last summer was filled with this preparation. One danger that showed itself last winter was the heavy snow load - and the accumulated weight was enough to actually cause the roof of the store in Dease Lake to collapse last year. So with the help of my brother who kindly arrived for a visit just in time for the "winter work bee", a multi-pronged approach was made. The job started by building plywood boxes sized to fit over all of the skylights and roof vents of the trailer and hauling these up to the roof, which would soon be all covered up with a huge tarp which was snugly fitted and tied down. Then, while the trailer was being drained and winterized to prevent plumbing problems, support braces were built to be installed inside to help support the snow load and stop the roof from collapsing under the extreme weights. Will it work? We'll all know next spring..
