Gold rush, you say? What about BC’s JADE rush?


Last week I made THIS POST about a documentary that aired on CBC Saturday, all about the latest gold rush revival happening in BC right now. I imagine most of you know about the gold rush that took place in the 1800’s – Billy Barker and all of that – but did you know that the economy in BC was supported by resources long before Bill and his pals arrived? Check out the latest POST on our sister site, BC Is Awesome, about the jade rush!
