Summary

The Bay Silver property includes the old United Empire mine from which limited production of high-grade silver was seen in the 1930’s. Ore from the mine was shipped to the valley floor below by way of a tramline, portions of which still remain on the property.

The property contains numerous silver-rich showings some of them developed by hundreds of feet of tunnels. In 1983 and 1984, high-grade ore was trenched from silver- lead- zinc veins, first explored in 1919.

Silver Grail and Teuton Resources jointly own the property. It is situated a few kilometres north of Stewart, British Columbia, overlooking the town and deep water port.
