Invest in Cherry Creek

British Columbia, Canada



Bounded by the City of Kamloops to the east, Cherry Creek is characterized by rolling hills, natural grasslands and agricultural uses. Large, multi-parcel ranching operations, including Cherry Creek Ranch, have dominated most of the land area since the 1970s.

Cherry Creek is also the home of the New Afton Copper-Gold Mine (New Gold Inc.) located minutes off of the Coquihalla Highway on the Trans Canada Highway 1. Homes and properties are not located within close proximity to the mine site, therefore the mine does not pose any problems for the residents.

Another flourishing industry in the Cherry Creek area is agriculture. The area is home to a number of hay, cattle and poultry farms. The large acreages provided throughout the area are advantageous for the various types of farming.

Cherry Creek is an unincorporated area with limited services. The community remains as a rural, agricultural community with limited commercial activity. Mineral claims and active mining operations continue to flank the north and east boundaries while small scale local commercial activities take place throughout the community.
