GOLDEN HISTORY 

This Section of our Website is to add some history pertaining to Placer Mining in Leechtown in the last 50 years.  VIPMA is asking all members and any visitors to this site who have pictures, old maps, information, etc., to please contact vipma@shaw.ca so that we can preserve the history of Placer Mining on Vancouver Island.

DON AND DELORIS (DON RAZZO)

The Club Claims of VIPMA were the original claims held by Don Razzo and his partner Deloris.  The beginning of this series is dedicated to Don and Deloris, we don't have a lot of photos etc. on either Don or Deloris; but we have managed to get a couple and hopefully over time others will find the time to donate pictures and help us build the story of Don and Deloris, for which we would be most thankful.
