The Servant occurrence is located south of Coppery Creek, approximately 1.4 kilometres south west of its junction with Dewar Creek.

The area is primarily underlain by siltstone, argillite and quartzite of the Creston Formation, while dolomitic carbonate rocks of the Kitchener Formation, both of the Middle Proterozoic Purcell Supergroup, outcrop to the east and west. Gabbro sills and dikes intrude the sediments.

Locally, chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite are found in small quartz veins hosted by a schist.

In 1986, Agincourt Explorations explored the area as the Great Dane 2 claim. In 1996 and 1997, programs of rock, silt and soil sampling were completed on the area as the GD claims. In 2006, Eagle Plains Resources completed a 154.3 line-kilometre airborne geophysical survey on the area as the K9 property. In 2009, a further 479.1 line-kilometre airborne geophysical survey was completed. In 2013, a program of geological mapping and rock, silt and soil sampling were completed.
