British Bar
British Bar was another of the gold-yielding bars along the Fraser River, and was located roughly 8 km south of Quesnel.
In this despatch, Douglas writes that there will be employment on this bar for more than a hundred men, and that it will not be exhausted in less than two or three years.
The above geocoordinates are a rough estimate based on directions given in the despatch noted above.
