UNCONFIRMED
This waterfall is known to exist but its stature and / or location have not yet been verified by the World Waterfall Database.
Gold Creek is a major tributary to Big Silver Creek, itself one of the largest streams flowing into Harrison Lake. As Gold Creek descends from its source basin, it leaps over at least three major falls in quick succession, dropping for around 2,000 feet in all. Based on the topographic data available currently, the uppermost tier appears to be a long cascading type fall which drops about 400 feet. The second and third tiers account for over 1,300 feet of the total height and should be the most visible portions of the falls. Smaller falls and cascades should be found between the various sections to make up for the additional drop.

Gold Creek is fed by four small lakes, at least four individual glaciers as well as significant annual snowfall. This suggests that the falls could be among the more significant waterfalls in British Columbia, based on both height and volume.

Access to Gold Creek Falls likely involves significant bushwhacking, as logging roads which formerly ran near the falls have been decommissioned and are significantly overgrown at this point.
