The Pom Pom occurrence is situated near Quenville Creek, approximately 4 kilometres southeast of Logan Lake and 35 kilometres north of Merritt.

The Pom Pom occurrence is underlain by grey-green and purple andesitic tuffs, flows and breccias of the Upper Triassic Nicola Group intruded by a microdiorite dike. Chalcopyrite and bornite occur in the dike as fracture controlled mineralization accompanied by epidote, calcite and hematite alteration mineralogy.

Copper mineralization grades 0.17 per cent copper (Assessment Report 18048).

In 2015, Laurence Sookochoff carried out a structural analysis and 2 kilometres of localized magnetometer surveying on part of the Bertha property, approximately 3.5 kilometres to the northwest.
