Most of the placer gold of the Clinton Mining Division has come from the Fraser River and Watson Bar Creek. The records of early production are incomplete, and from 1883 to 1900 the production of Fraser River in the Clinton Mining Division is included with that of the Lillooet Mining Division (see Fraser River (Lillooet), 092INW063).

Most of the production has come from bars and low benches along the Fraser River.
