The Fraser Canyon gold rush began in 1858 when gold was found at the confluence of the Thompson River and the Nicoamen River. The boom that followed was fierce, but short-lived. But it also resulted in the founding of the colony of British Columbia. Thousands of gold seekers came at that time from the USA, Canada, China, Scandinavia, Germany and other countries. In the fall of 1858, disagreements arose between gold panners and Indians (Nlaka'pamux) and these resulted in the Fraser Canyon War.

In any case, the towns in newly established British Columbia grew and the frontier experienced development. In 1860, when the sandbars of the Fraser no longer yielded gold, many prospectors left the area.

The Fraser Canyon gold rush also led to the famous Klondike gold rush in the Yukon region and the Cariboo gold rush. The latter really started in 1861 in the then British colony of British Columbia. Even today, there is still a lot of gold there and many gold companies.

Canagold Resources - -, for example, recently operating under the name Canarc Resource, is working on its New Polaris project. This is an advanced and high-grade gold project that has been producing previously and is located in northwestern British Columbia. The company is also focusing on other concession areas and projects.

Ximen Mining - - is also located in British Columbia with its projects. Besides the Treasure Mountain silver project, these are the Brett, Gold Drop, Amelia and Kennville gold projects.
