The Stratigraphy and Structure of Salmo Map-area, B. C.

CIM Bulletin, 1951


M INERAL deposits of Salmo dap-area have aroused the interest of prospectors for more than a half-century. Properties within the map-area have produced lead, zinc, Silver, tungsten, and gold. Sheep Creek mining camp ranks fifth in the Province in the total production of gold, but during recent years interest has been concentrated upon base metals, and meticulous prospecting and exploration have resulted in the discovery of many large zinc-lead orebodies.
