Sugar Loaf Chieftain Gold Mine – Grandview Bench, Salmon Arm BC


NAVIGATION ROUTES – GEOGRAPHICAL POINTS OF INTEREST


Sugar Loaf Chieftain Gold Mine – A hard to find gold claim, dated back to 1930 is located at Grandview Bench, about 10 kilometers north of Enderby. The main shaft entrance, plagued by erosion was still accessible in 2008. Just a few meters north of an old fence line at the southern end of the spur, lies a second, caved-in shaft covered by brush. Access to the mine is problematic as most of the land has been bought up and developed. However, the mine sites can be reached on foot via a small skid trail,  due east off Grandview Bench Road.
