The Bar 3 (Bear Grid) occurrence is located on the west side of Bubar Creek, approximately 1.8 kilometres north-northeast of its creek mouth on the Kettle River.

The area is underlain by greenstones and metasedimentary rocks of the upper Paleozoic Knob Hill Group. To the south these have been intruded by a stock of the Eocene Coryell Plutonic Suite.

Locally, a weakly pyritic and clay-altered chert with silica bands hosts gold values. In 1999, a 1.0 metre chip sample (72892) assayed 1.22 grams per tonne gold (Assessment Report 22114).

In 1970, Dekalb Mining completed a program of soil sampling on the area as the Bubar and Rhubarb claims. In 1983, Prominent Resources completed a program of soil sampling and ground geophysical surveys on the area. In 1984, a program of rock and soil sampling, geological mapping and a ground electromagnetic survey were completed on the area as the Beta claim. In 1990 and 1991, Teck Corporation completed a program of rock, silt and soil sampling, geological mapping and ground magnetic surveys on the area as the Bar claims.
