The Livingstone Creek area has recorded 60,000 ounces (oz) of gold production in its 100-plus-year history. The owners have recovered over 10,000 oz of gold within the old-timers’ worked zones. Several rich areas have been discovered and were able to produce 350 oz in 2000 sluiced yards. These productive areas were all among the old-timers’ mines, which is a 1.5-mile long portion of the creek. Today several miles of untouched channel remain. The current owner found a nugget weighing over 36 oz and there are records showing a further eight recorded placer nuggets weighing over 20 oz each. The Livingstone area is known for its abundance of large gold nuggets, and the largest in the Yukon.

Livingstone Creek drains east to west out of the Pelly Mountains and is a
tributary of the South Big Salmon River. Several high-grade surface quartz vein structures exist, including one that measures 14 meters wide and averages 4.5 grams of gold per ton highlighted by 2- and 3-meter wide veins running between 10 and 13 grams of gold per ton.


The remains of the historic Livingstone Village are located at the downstream end of the placer claims. The area is known to produce big gold nuggets over its 100-plus-year history. The area was so substantial that it created a 200-plus person village, which warranted a NorthWest Mounted Police station, a mining recorder’s office, a post office, several roadhouses, and a red-light district. From 1906 to 1918, the Seattle Livingstone Mining Company did a large-scale underground placer operation where some of the drifts were 1000 feet long just to reach the pay channel. Reports say that the grade of the gravel ran one-third to two-thirds of an ounce of gold per yard. Livingstone Creek has been mined on and off since the late 1800s. One family has been working the claims since the 1960s. The current owner has had Livingstone for over 50 years.
