Cow Mountain hosts the historical Cariboo Gold Quartz Mine which exploited primarily vertically dipping quartz vein mineralization. From 1933 to 1959 the mine is reported to have produced 1.68 million tonnes grading 0.37 ounces per tonne (621,000 total ounces of gold). Due to a lack of exploration the mine was closed because the Company could not replace mined ounces. Through continued exploration the Cariboo Gold Quartz Mine still holds great potential for discovery of high-grade ore.
Today, Cow Mountain has been subject to an extensive diamond drill program testing continuity and extension at depth. BGM has completed a shallow phase 1 drill program in order to increase confidence on historic resources and plans to incorporate a new resource on Cow in a property wide resource statement in due course.
