History Facts from Wikipedia
A gold miner named Christie discovered a lead of gold near McDame Creek in 1876. This gold lead became known as the “Christie Lead”. The lead was a run of gold that was 30 metres wide and continuous for almost a 1.5 kilometers. The lead returned $2,000.00 to $6,000.00 weekly. It was located between Snow Creek and 4th North Fork Creek and ran parallel to McDame Creek. In 1877 the Christie Lead abruptly ran out. Many attempts were made to find where the lead may have continued along the creek. Some believe the lost “Christie Lead” awaits rediscovery along McDame Creek.
