The Fisher showing is located on the south side of Boulder Creek, 3.8 kilometres from its junction with the Wild Horse River.

At the Fisher showing, a 2 metre bed of dolomitic limestone of the Lower Cambrian Cranbrook Formation occurs in part of the Wild Horse River fault zone. The bed has been highly shattered and a network of quartz veinlets and stringers traverses the rock. About 10 per cent of the mineralized bed contains quartz vein material. The zone is up to 5 metres wide and contains a central mineralized vein system up to 1 meter wide. The quartz is host to pyrite, galena and chalcopyrite and a high-grade sample assayed 54 grams gold and 3565 grams silver, but this is not representative of average values. In 1996, grab samples returned values of 5.0 grams per tonne gold (Assessment Report 24683).

In 1995-1996, the showing was explored by 402813 Alberta Ltd. as a part of the Golder and Sunstar claim groups. A complete exploration history can be found in Assessment Report 24230.
