The Morning Star No. 7 (Lot 2398) was Crown-granted to J.F. McRae in 1899. An old adit is located to the east of the junction of Chapleau and Cameronian Creeks.

Parallel massive sulphide veins occur in a roof pendant of Lower Jurassic Rossland Group metasediments enclosed by Middle Jurassic Nelson granites. The veins strike east-west and dip steeply to the south. The massive sulphides consist of pyrrhotite with stringers of galena, sphalerite and chalcopyrite. A sample of the mineralization analyzed 81.2 grams per tonne silver, 3.37 per cent zinc, 0.659 per cent lead, 0.068 per cent copper, 0.0711 per cent cadmium and 0.0232 per cent bismuth (Assessment Report 19093).

King Jack Resources Ltd. conducted a geochemical survey over the area in 1988.
