Note on Birkenhead Ranges[edit]

This is a term I've seen but can't remember where, maybe in de Hullu's book but I think maybe in Beautiful British Columbia or another trade publication, for the group of ranges between McGillivray Pass and east of the upper Pemberton Valley, i.e. those ranges flanking the basin of the Birkenhead River. The Cadwalladers are the only officially-named component; Noel Range I've linked and I think it's used in Lewis Green's book and in Mrs De Hullu's and Mrs Cunningham's Bridge River Gold; they also use the term Hurley Range for the mountains between the Hurley and Downton Lake/upper Bridge River. The term for the range including Tenquille and Sun God is the Pemberton Range, which again I don't have an immediate cite for but have seen plenty; maybe in Frances Decker's book on Pemberton, maybe in sources like Lieut. Mayne or other early writings; on the other side of hte Pemberton Valley the Ipsoot Range is also unofficial, and confusing things with the Pemberton Range name is the Pemberton Icecap, which does not have an official range-name either. Anyway this is mostly a post about the name Birkenehead Ranges' it's a natural-enough name but has not entered BCGNIS, ditto Noel Range and Pemberton Range; these are all otherwise just the Pacific Ranges.....Skookum1 (talk) 23:06, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Resources for WP:Mining[edit]

Here is a google for "MINFILE Cadwallader" which should list all the main properties and formations of this famous goldfield. Lewis Green's book The Great Years: Gold Mining in the Bridge River Valley if someone can find it is also a treasure trove of info.Skookum1 (talk) 01:11, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
