The BATHFIELD SILVER LODE occurrence is located approximately 7.8 kilometres west of Summerland. It produced 1 tonne of silver- lead-zinc ore from quartz veins in 1939. The recorded owners at that time were G.F. Shaw and F. Semenoff of Penticton.
The occurrence consists of a number of drusy, coarse-grained quartz veins and stringers hosted in granodiorite of the Jurassic Okanagan Intrusions. Vein mineralogy includes quartz, calcite, galena, tetrahedrite, pyrite, hematite, copper carbonates, sphalerite, and chalcopyrite.
