The Koot prospect is located about 4 kilometres east-southeast of Canal Flats.
The Koot occurrence is underlain by the Lower Cambrian Cranbrook Formation which is primarily comprised of siliceous quartzite, grit and pebble conglomerate, and sandstone. The quartzite is dense, poorly bedded, milky and medium to coarse grained. It appears to be steeply dipping and ranges from a fairly competent rock to one that contains numerous hairline fractures. Limonite generally occurs on fracture surfaces and sometimes interstitially to quartz grains.
Silica values of composite core samples, generally representing 20 metre lengths, ranged from 97.27 to 99.28 per cent (Assessment Report 10160).
