In 1864 Vancouver Island had its own brief gold rush creating Leechtown. The original cairn commemorating the boomtown has long vanished. With a team of volunteers and supporters VIPMA (the Vancouver Island Placer Mining Association) replaced the cairn with a new boulder monument. 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.

Subscribe to Motherboard Radio today! http://apple.co/1DWdc9d In October of last year Motherboard gained access to a massive, secretive Bitcoin mine housed within a repurposed factory in the Liaoning Province in rural northeast China. This is the infrastructure that keeps the digital currency’s decentralized network up and running, and its operators are profiting big time. The mine we visited is just one of six sites owned by a secretive group of four people, part of a colossal mining operation that, as of our visit, cumulatively generated 4,050 bitcoins a month, equivalent to a monthly gross of $1.5 million.

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
