Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Steve Thomson has announced regulatory changes will provide access to logging slash and wood-waste fibre needed by bioenergy producers and manufacturers of wood pellets and other bio-products. Amendments to regulations under the Forest Act, the Forest and Range Practices Act, and the Wildfire Act will bring into effect a residual forestry licence to cut, as well as a fibre supply licence to cut, for wood biomass. These licences will enable
smaller operators to acquire wood fibre and logging debris unwanted by primary harvesters. This includes the smaller trees, branches, limbs and tops of trees that are piled roadside or on logging landing sites as the by-product of a typical timber-harvesting operation. The new tenures do not grant rights to harvest standing timber. “These tenures will increase opportunities to turn slash piles and unwanted fibre into energy, wood pellets and other bio-products,” says Thomson.

“Improved use of logging leftovers and residual wood provides jobs and economic benefits for rural communities, especially those affected by the mountain pine beetle infestation.” Facts • Residual forestry licences to cut are intended for utilizing wood waste fibre from small, short-term operations limited to a few cut blocks or roadside operations. • Fibre supply licences to cut are intended for utilizing wood waste from larger geo-
graphic areas. • The BC Committee on Bio-Economy has recommended improved access to forest biomass fibre and feedstock to help accelerate the growth of the British Columbia bioeconomy. • Wood fibre bio-products include electricity, fuels, plastics, solvents, lubricants and even food additives.

Barkerville gold-panning championships Aug. 11-12 Elaine Edgington, the great-greatgranddaughter of Barkerville namesake William “Billy” Barker, will be Barkerville’s guest of honour at the 2012 Canadian National Gold Panning Championships on Aug. 11-12, and will speak at a special Discovery Day ceremony planned for 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. Discovery Day, which caps off a weekend of sesquicentennial celebrations at Barkerville, is the official commemoration of Billy Barker’s astonishing placer gold strike in August 1862. Barker and his partners discovered a 30-foot layer of rich gold-bearing gravel 52 feet below the surface of lower Williams Creek that averaged 100 ounces of gold a day. Discovery Day events will include musical performances throughout the town, a brand new Billy Barker historical interpretation, a visit from “The Spirit of Cariboo Cameron,” and a 100plus pound “Happy Birthday Barkerville” cake. The 2012 Canadian National Gold Panning Championships will be hosted by Barkerville’s own five-time World
Invitational Gold Panning Champion Scott Rea. The championships are a two-day extravaganza that is sure to appeal to gold enthusiasts of all ages. Competition categories include child, adult, seniors, professionals, teams, dash for the dentist (a children’s candyhunt), scavenger pile (an adult freefor-all), grudge match, and King of the Creek (the ultimate contest for bragging rights and a $1,000 cash prize). Each category has cash prizes and sponsored gifts for the winners (including a $1,500 high bank sluice for the adults and a Razor
electric scooter for the children). Anyone can participate, provided they register 10 minutes prior to each event.
