Chronicles of valley and coast mines

In Slumach’s Gold (Rick Antonson et al) is noted on page 113 : “[Rob] Nicholson’s research revealed that…a man named Shotwell and a partner named Harrington showed up in Ruskin … in 1911 having returned from a long trek into the Pitt Lake country.” Nicholson’s source (often neglected by researchers) is Charles A. Miller’s self-published book The Golden Mountains, 1973.

Click here to read the part of chapter 12 of the book (Volcanic Brown’s Last Trip) relating to the appearance of Shotwell and Harrington in Ruskin. There is much more interesting information in these "chronicles of valley and coast mines." Daryl Friesen sells original copies of The Golden Mountains for $20.00. Go to
