The RWS showing is located on the north side of Forestry Creek, 900 metres west-northwest of the confluence with the Indian River.

The area is underlain by granodioritic intrusive rocks of the Early to Middle Cretaceous Coast Plutonic Complex.

Locally, a mineralized quartz vein is exposed over a length of 6 metres and is hosted by quartz diorite. The vein, 0.20 to 0.30-metres wide, strikes north and dips 30 degrees west.

In 1982, a selected grab sample assayed 1.74 per cent copper and 26.7 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 11142, p. 9).

In 1982, Trinity Oil & Gas completed a program of prospecting and an airborne geophysical survey on the area on the area as the RWS claims.
