Area Data : Gold Bridge is an unincorporated community in the Bridge River Country located at the confluence of the Bridge River and the Hurley River.

History :

Gold Bridge is a small town nestled in the Bridge River Valley, among the towering peaks of the South Chilcotin Mountains. It has a rich and fascinating history, full of railways, ghost towns, flooded valleys, old mines and trails. Since 1859, when gold was first discovered on Bridge River, this region has been home to miners and their families.

The big gold rush began in the 1930s at the Bralorne-Pioneer Mine near Gold Bridge. It was the richest gold claim in Canada, producing more than four million ounces of gold before it closed in 1971 and prompted the construction of a complete town. The mine has been abandoned for many years but recently there has been new mining activity in the area.

History buffs still find plenty of old ghost towns and abandoned mines to poke around in.
