Some people know about Indian Arm in Vancouver, BC, but almost no one knows about the abandoned mine up the arm. ****Only Accessible by boat**** If you do go...dont be stupid, be smart and careful. Bring a flashlight and go with a friend. Only go at daylight. We will not be held responsible for anything stupid that you may do. As you can tell by the video, the entrance blends into the rock. So when looking for the mine, stay close to the shore line. See the map below. This is approximate. Within a few hundred meters. https://maps.google.ca/maps?q=49.389748,-122.883453&hl=en&num=1&t=m&z=12

In 1864 Vancouver Island had its own brief gold rush creating Leechtown. The original cairn commemorating the boomtown has long vanished.

Unveiled by the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, the Honourable Judith Guichon, in July 2014 it marks the 150th anniversary of this still producing gold area.

VIPMA is the Vancouver Island Placer Mining Association, a group of dedicated panners looking for gold west of Victoria BC. This video highlights the Iron Wheel claim about 20 minutes north of Sooke and only accessible by VIPMA members. With good luck and much effort the historic Leech River yields fine particles and the occasional flake of gold. Its a great way to spend the day1
