Sailors Bar
Sailors Bar is located south of Spuzzum on the Fraser River, roughly 10 km north of Yale. According to this despatch, the bar was famous for its rich gold deposits, which was monopolized by a man named Mead and one other. In this despatch, Douglas writes that the greatest instance of mining success which I heard of in course of our journey fell to the lot of a party of three men, who made one hundred and ninety ounces of gold dust in seven working days on Sailor's Bar.
