Attention ALL PLACER MINERS in BC:
Hi all Members: I have been working with FLNRO, MEM and the Fire Center, I have attached the Crown Land Document here for you. You MUST Still follow all the regulations of the Wild Fire Act.
Here are the links again for the Danger Ratings and Also for the Weather Stations close to you.
The Link Below is the Document for Crown Land Use: Dated August 11, 2017
This is the information that Rick Adams (MEM) was able to get for the Placer Industry, from the Information Officer for The Cariboo Fire Center.
This closure does not apply to mining activities. As you mentioned, these activities are still bound by the usual restrictions and we would like to urge that caution be taken with all activities given the current extreme fire danger ratings and high winds expected in the next couple of days.
