McCrory relocated and trenched an arsenopyrite showing in 1987. Rea Gold Corp. and Verdstone Gold Corp. optioned and drilled the property in 1988. Bryndon Ventures Inc. explored and drilled the property in 1989.

The area is underlain by Permian to Carboniferous paragneiss, intruded by Cretaceous granitic gneiss. An epithermal quartz vein with pyrite, arsenopyrite and barite occurs in the paragneiss. The vein, which measures about 75 metres in length and 60 metres down dip, strikes 160 degrees and dips 70 degrees west. Values in silver and gold are low.
