Oceanfront Aggregate Resource Property, St Vincent Bay, BC, Canada

Description

84 acres with 3,000 ft of oceanfront in a protected deep water bay. Potentially large sand, gravel and quarried stone aggregate deposit. 10 hectare foreshore licence and waste site permit in place. Only 11 hours by barge to Vancouver.

This is an excellent potential site for an oceanfront aggregate resource property. The property was logged a few years ago and there is a very thin layer of overburden above a substantial sand, gravel and stone aggregate resource that is close to the shoreline. The property is accessible by both land and water; there is forest service access road from the nearby community of Powell River.


The foreshore is very well protected with deep water making it an excellent site for barge and deep sea ship transport. Currently there is a 10 hectare foreshore licence in place for a log dump and storage.


The current owner has a waste site permit in place. The barge time to Vancouver is approximately 11 hours where there is a strong demand for declining aggregate resources.

Recreation :

The area is a mecca for recreational activity. Because the property is situated on the ocean, one can enjoy all the benefits the ocean has to offer.

Some activities include boating, fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, site seeing, hiking and swimming in an area characterised as one of BC’s popular outdoor playgrounds. There are endless amounts of shoreline to explore but one does not have to venture any further than your own dock to catch your daily limit in prawns, crabs, oysters and clams.

Area Data :

Jervis Inlet
Slicing deep into the Coast Mountain Range Jervis Inlet becomes Princess Royal Reach and Queens Reach, with a branch to Princess Louisa Inlet and the famed Chatterbox Falls. A popular recreation destination in Jervis Inlet is Hotham Sound, an isolated and protected warm-water wilderness leading off the north shore of the inlet. Hotham Sound is ringed by steep mountains and walls of sheer rock, with numerous tumbling waterfalls - majestic Pacific Northwest scenery! Hotham Sound is named after Admiral William Hotham of the Royal Navy, Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean in the 1790s. The peaceful Hotham Sound is a favorite destination for kayakers, who explore the sheltered coves and bays, and enjoy wilderness camping amongst the Harmony Islands.

North America’s premiere boating, trophy fishing and diving destination, world famous Desolation Sound Marine Park, award-winning marine and wilderness parks, golf courses, recreational facilities, services, shopping, dining, arts and culture.

Sechelt
Sechelt's central location on the southern peninsula of the Sunshine Coast makes it a natural hub for business, culture and tourism. With a population of 9,224 the thriving village is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery and a natural seaside beauty that lends a special charm to the attractions and amenities of the Heart of the Sunshine Coast.


The Sechelt area climate is characterized by mild, moist winters and warm dry summers. Temperatures on the Coast range from freezing in winter to highs of 30C (90F) in summer. The annual rainfall is approximately 100 cm (40 in). The Sunshine Coast is sheltered from the open Pacific and the milder weather patterns result in very light snowfalls in the region.


The Sunshine Coast is split into two portions on either side of Jervis Inlet. Roughly speaking, the southern half between the ferry slips at Langdale and Earls Cove occupies the Sechelt Peninsula, while the northern half between the ferry slip at Saltery Bay and Lund sits on the Malaspina Peninsula.


Nelson Island
Nelson Island is named after Viscount Horatio Nelson, the hero of the British navy. Nelson Island sits at the mouth of Jervis Inlet guarding the secrets of Prince of Wales Reach and Queens Reach. Famous with the yachting crowd for the scenery and anchorages, the area has a lot to offer. It is one of the few spots on the coast where you can feel the presence of the towering Coast Mountains while experiencing the expanse of the Strait of Georgia. It is a region with a mild, dry and semi-Mediterranean climate.
