Area: 15466 sq km.
Location: This highland area borders the Cariboo Mountains on the east, and the Cariboo Plateau on the west. Its northern limit is in the area east of Prince George, i.e. Mt Tabor, and its southern limit is Mahood Lake. The boundaries with the plateau and the mountains are indeterminate and are only approximate here, having been drawn so as to include upland area that is obviously not part of the Cariboo Plateau per se, and on the east following creek valleys and obvious upland divides, and so as to include mountains contained in the region as described in Holland (i.e. Watt, Stevenson, Perseus, Two Sisters). The area includes the Cariboo Goldfields area around Barkerville.
