Most of the production from the Lillooet Mining Division has come from bars and low benches along the Fraser River and along the Bridge River. Placers along both rivers were found in 1858, and although a large amount of gold was mined from them, no records of production before 1874 are available. In many years the production recorded for both rivers was combined.

Up to 1902 all production from Lillooet Mining Division, and from 1883 to 1900 all production for Clinton Mining Division (see 092INW066) are recorded under this occurrence.
