The BRAE 1 showing is located approximately 1 kilometre southwest of Spring Lake and 5 kilometres northwest of Peachland.

The showing is a quartz vein hosted by granodiorite of the Early Jurassic Pennask Batholith. The vein is brecciated and contains pyrite. A sample of the vein assayed 0.5 gram per tonne gold and 37.3 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 16921).

The area was prospected by N.C. Lenard in 1986-87, although old trenches indicate that earlier, unrecorded work has been carried out.
