The Profit-Miller group, owned in 1919 by R. Ainslie and D. McCuaig, is situated at the head of Virgil Creek (Miller Creek).
The area is underlain by east-west layers of quartzitic siltstone of the Upper Triassic Slocan Group and granites of the Middle Jurassic Nelson Batholith. A north trending fault cuts the area. On the footwall side of a shear zone, 15 to 20 centimetres of ore occurs in a quartz vein. A sample taken in 1919 ran 2.7 grams per tonne gold, 545 grams per tonne silver, 18 per cent lead and 21 per cent zinc (Annual Report 1919, page 132). A vein sample taken in 1987, likely in the same area, assayed 400 grams per tonne gold, 120 grams per tonne silver, 0.028 per cent copper, 8.0 per cent lead and 10.05 per cent zinc. Another sample assayed higher in lead and zinc (EMPR Paper 1989-5, Table A).
