Since its discovery in 1891, the Slocan silver camp has a rich history, having produced more than 2 million kilograms of silver, 262 million kilograms of lead and 258 million kilograms of zinc.
Underexplored by modern exploration techniques, this land has seen little modern exploration because of the previous fragmented ownership and the presence of overburden.
The Klondike Silver Land Package represents prime hunting ground for important new silver/zinc/lead rich discoveries. Including an area on strike with the Main Lode: an approximately 9 km long structure that hosted the biggest producing mines in the area.
