The Crown Point occurrence is located on a north east ridge of Mount Cornfield, near the southern boundary of Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park. This is about 2 kilometres east northeast of the Alpine Gold (MINFILE 082FNW127) occurrence.

The area is underlain by layers of quartzitic siltstone of the Upper Triassic Slocan Group and granites of the Middle Jurassic Nelson Batholith.

Locally, veins contain values in zinc, copper and lead. A sample, taken in 1987, assayed 4.8 per cent zinc, 0.094 per cent copper and 0.014 per cent lead (Paper 1989-5).

The claims were Crown-granted in 1899. No further exploration history is known.
