The Amos occurrence is located 1.1 kilometres east of the Fraser River, approximately 3.5 kilometres northwest of Pavilion.
The area is underlain by chert, siliceous argillite and siliclastic rocks of the Permian to Jurassic Cache Creek Complex. These have been intruded by granodioritic intrusive rocks of the Late Jurassic Mount Martley and Tiffin Creek Stocks.
Locally, a silicified black argillite with no obvious sulphides hosts precious and base metal values. In 1987, a 0.5 metre rock chip sample (PVV88-R17) assayed 0.518 per cent lead, 20.3 grams per tonne silver and 1.0 gram per tonne gold (Assessment Report 18366).
In 1986 and 1987, Ashworth Explorations prospected and sampled the area as the Pavilion property. In 2010, the area was explored as the Ryan property.
