The Eskay Creek region is a rich gold and silver mining area in the Unuk and Iskut River region on north coastal mountains of British Columbia. Remote and rugged, the area has a service road from the Stewart-Cassiar Highway at Bell 2 Services.
The mining region was spearheaded by Murray Pezim in 1987 with diamond drilling and underground mining established. Development work by Prime Resources yielded gold in 1988 when hole 109 turned out to contain 5 oz of gold per ton. A mill and camp was later set up and the mine entered into production.
