The HAYNES LAKE deposit is located approximately 30 kilometres southeast of Kelowna.

Work on the property, consisting of geological and radiometric surveys and diamond drilling, was carried out during the period 1973-1977 by Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation (Japan) for Nissho-Iwai Canada Ltd.

The deposit is underlain by hornblende-biotite granodiorite orthogneiss of the Upper Proterozoic Shuswap Metamorphic Complex. To the southwest lies the Cretaceous Okanagan Batholith. The deposit occurs in Miocene paleochannel sediments just south of, and down gradient from, the junction of two major paleovalley structures. The sediments, which are mainly conglomerate and carbonaceous sandstone, are capped by an average of 75 metres of massive, vesicular, olivine- basalt of the Miocene Chilcotin Group.

The uranium mineralization, believed to be ningyoite, is commonly associated with iron sulphides, likely marcasite. The mineralized area measures about 2000 by 700 metres. Ore estimates are in excess of 2 million tonnes grading slightly over 0.017 per cent uranium (Sawyer, et.al., 1981).
