Dates of existence


William Acheson was one of the Acheson family who mined in Atlin. His parents were born in Grand Forks in 1902, and William and his brother Jack were born in Alaska. They mined on Pine Creek in 1936, for a few years before selling out to Carl Beal of Northern Resources. The family then joined with Ernest Patty and General McRae to form Spruce Creek Placers, which operated until 1947. Jack re-opened Spruce Creek after the war with his partner Maynard Wilson. William was later with Associated Construction and Management Co., San Francisco, California, and was married to Wilma Acheson.
