125km north of Pemberton,
Bralorne sits at the foothils of the Chilcotins.
A facet of BC’s history, accessible via unpaved gravel roads under expansive skies, all but abandoned…..
The Bralorne mine boomed during the Great Depression, the crown jewel of the Bridge River Valley.
From remote Chilcotin wood land to busting town.
4 Million ounces of gold were extracted from the hills, and the town expanded.
Homes, lodges, schools, bars; wealth in the mountains.
And just as hundreds of people rushed to create a bustling community in the hills, the markets shifted, and the town shrank away.
Lately, interest has been renewed in the area, and people are returning using some of the old buildings as recreation properties. Bralorne offers some of the best backcountry access and terrain in the province.
In 2018 Race Face set out to explore Bralorne’s backcountry, to get its history and mine just a little bit of gold….
