|History :||During the gold rush in the late 1800’s Shoal Bay, with as many as 5,000 people, was the most populated village on the BC coast. By 1898, small entrepreneurs had staked 200 mineral claims, but several of the larger mines were owned by British Columbia Golds, an English company, including the Dorth Morten and Alexandra mines on Phillips Arm. Before the gold rush, the district of Thurlow was a center for commercial logging. People had lived there since the early 1800’s and one of the largest sawmills on the coast operated at Shoal Bay.|
