New Pathways to Gold Society gets fresh start for next phase thanks to new funding

(LILLOOET) The Mile 0 cairn was a fitting spot for the New Pathways to Gold Society to begin the next phase of its journey down the Gold Rush/Spirits Trails.

New funding from the provincial government will enable NPTGS to continue to create economic development opportunities via heritage tourism and First Nations reconciliation in the Hope-Barkerville corridor.

MLAs Jackie Tegart (Fraser-Nicola) and Donna Barnett (Cariboo-Chilcotin) presented the funds to NPTGS representatives at an event at the cairn on April 22. The $500,000 in funding will allow the Society to continue work on initiatives like the Alexandra Bridge Project, Gold Rush All Seasons Trail and corridor marketing programs.

Since being founded in 2007, NPTGS has raised and/or leveraged over $4 million for projects and contributed over $3.5 million to local communities. The Society gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.

Now you can follow the Gold Rush/Spirit Trails online as well as on the ground: Like the New Pathways to Gold Society on Facebook and follow us on Twitter! Keep track of the Society's events and on-going programs, and find out what our partners are up to. Get connected!
