The Gold Viking property is 1 kilometre west of Scorpion Creek and 2 kilometres northeast of Slocan. The property is accessible by 5 kilometre of all weather gravel road from the town of Slocan and the Slocan highway.
The Gold Viking property comprises the Gold Viking (Lot 4850), Viking (Lot 4852), and New Phoenix (Lot 4851) reverted Crown granted claims and fractions. The property is underlain by granitic rocks near the western margin of the Nelson batholith.
The mineralization consist of quartz veins in north and northeasterly trending shear zones. On the Gold Viking claim the original development, at 957 metres elevation, consisted of an adit. On the New Phoenix claim an adit, at 926 metres elevation, follows a 015 striking and 70-degree east-dipping shear zone. Shipments from 1932 to 1936 totalled 15 tonnes, yielding 4790 grams of silver 373 grams of gold and 14 kilograms of lead. Red Metal Mines Ltd. worked and diamond drilled in the area in 1969. The property was held by Amergas Resources Ltd. in 1980.
The Gold Viking vein strikes north and dips 70 degrees east. Rusted samples of quartz contain galena, sphalerite and trace amounts of chalcopyrite and pyrite. A grab sample from the mine dump assayed 1.1 grams per tonne gold, 35 grams per tonne silver, 0.01 per cent copper, 0.07 per cent lead, and 0.25 per cent zinc. On the New Phoenix claim, another vein is exposed by a 40-metre long adit that follows a shear zone in granodiorite. The shear zone strikes 015 degrees, dips 70 degrees southeast and contains a lenticular quartz vein that ranges from 0.5 to 1.0 metre in width. The vein is slightly mineralized by galena, sphalerite and pyrite in quartz and calcite gangue. A 1-metre wide chip sample across the vein, near the face of the adit, assayed 0.1 gram per tonne gold, 8.9 grams per tonne silver, 0.01 per cent copper, 0.23 per cent lead and 0.16 per cent zinc (Assessment Report 8825).
Amerigas Resources Ltd. surveyed the area in 1980.
