H. E. Porter (648 words)
As Porter was working for the Whitehorse Copper Company at the time of staking the Pueblo, he received no more for his efforts other than a minor staking fee.
Shortly after staking the Pueblo Porter headed up to the Carmacks country where he staked up a succession of coal leases including the Andesite in 1901 the Losch in ‘02 and in 1903 finally hitting the big one, Division Coal, which remains as one of Yukon’s largest known coal deposits.
Porter Creek which runs through the Pueblo property, and one of Whitehorse’s largest residential subdivisions are both named in honour of this ardent pioneer prospector.
