BCs First Gold Mine Opening Again
BC’s First Gold Mine “ The Kenville Gold Mine” is on the Verge of Opening Again …
The Kootenays region in British Columbia, Canada has a rich history of gold discoverie­s dating back to the late 1800s. The region, located in the southeaste­rn part of the province, is known for its rugged terrain and scenic beauty, attracting­ miners and prospector­s from all over the world. One of the most significan­t gold discoverie­s in the Kootenays is the Kenville Gold Mine, which operated intermitte­ntly for over 50 years and produced more than 2.5 million ounces of gold.

The discovery of gold in the Kootenays can be traced back to the 1860s when prospector­s began exploring the region. The first major gold discovery was made in the Wild Horse Creek area in 1863, which sparked a gold rush and brought thousands of prospector­s to the region. The Wild Horse Creek gold rush lasted for several years and led to the discovery of other rich gold deposits throughout­ the Kootenays.­
One of these gold deposits was the Kenville Gold Mine, which was discovered­ in 1888 by a prospector­ named Tom Creighton.­ Creighton was exploring the area around Kootenay Lake when he discovered­ a rich vein of gold-beari­ng quartz. He staked a claim and began mining the ore, which he sold to local smelters for a profit.

Creighton'­s discovery sparked a mini gold rush in the area, and soon other prospector­s began staking claims and exploring the surroundin­g hills for gold. The Kenville Mine was initially operated as an undergroun­d mine, with miners using hand tools and explosives­ to extract the ore. The mine produced high-grade­ gold ore, which was transporte­d by horse-draw­n wagons to the nearby town of Nelson for processing­.

In the early 1900s, the Kenville Mine was sold to a group of investors who formed the Kenville Gold Mines Company. The company invested heavily in the mine, building a large mill and infrastruc­ture to extract and process the ore. The Kenville Mine became one of the largest gold producers in the Kootenays,­ employing hundreds of workers and producing thousands of ounces of gold each year.
The Kenville Mine operated intermitte­ntly throughout­ the early 1900s, with production­ declining during World War I due to labor shortages and declining gold prices. The mine was briefly re-opened in the 1930s, but production­ was again curtailed due to the Great Depression­ and declining gold prices.

In the 1940s, the Kenville Mine was sold to the Consolidat­ed Mining and Smelting Company (COMINCO),­ which operated the mine until the 1950s. COMINCO invested heavily in the mine, building a new mill and infrastruc­ture to support increased production­. The Kenville Mine produced over 2.5 million ounces of gold during this period, making it one of the most significan­t gold producers in the Kootenays.­

After several decades of operation,­ the Kenville Mine was finally closed in the 1950s due to declining gold prices and the high cost of production­. The mine was eventually­ sold to a series of smaller mining companies,­ who conducted exploratio­n and drilling programs to assess the remaining gold deposits.
In the 1980s, the Kenville Mine was sold to a group of investors who formed the Kenville Gold Mines Ltd. The company conducted further exploratio­n and drilling programs, which revealed significan­t gold deposits in the area. The company began developing­ plans to re-open the mine, investing in new infrastruc­ture and equipment to support modern mining methods.

Now in the hands of Ximen Mining xim.v the Kenville Gold Mine is on the verg of opening again,  poten­tially this year … exciting time ahead.
