The Sid showing is located on the west side of Greata Creek, approximately 6 kilometres west of Peachland.

The showing consists of several mineralized occurrences identified by trenching and drilling on the former Sid claim group. Granodiorite and quartz diorite of the Early Jurassic Pennask Batholith is sheared and cut by quartz veins. The shear zone is heavily iron stained.

In 1969, Brendako Mines Ltd. dug a 24-metre trench exposing chalcopyrite and pyrite in quartz veins in quartz diorite. In 1970, they drilled 2 diamond-drill holes totaling 55 metres on the Sid 3 claim. A short distance to the north, on an adjacent property, Index Mines Ltd. drilled 3 holes on the Sid 2 claim for a total of 82 metres. At both sites blebs of bornite, native copper and molybdenite were noted in drill core. In 1972, Index Mines Ltd. and Huntsman Resources Ltd. drilled 4 diamond-drill holes on Sid 2 and Sid 3 for a total of 72.5 metres. As above, blebs of bornite, native copper and molybdenite were noted in the drill core, but the assay results were not reported.

Other vein hosted mineral occurrences nearby are Little Duncan (082ENW034) and Panorama (082ENW035).
