The Quen occurrence is situated on the north side of Quenville Creek, approximately 4 kilometres southeast of Logan Lake and 35 kilometres north of Merritt.

The area is underlain by augite and plagioclase porphyritic andesitic flows and red volcanic conglomerate of the Upper Triassic Nicola Group. Chalcopyrite, bornite, pyrite, native copper, molybdenite, chalcocite, malachite and aurite occur in the andesitic flows.

The Quen occurrence is part of the Bertha property owned by Guy and Christopher Delorme. In 2015, Laurence Sookochoff, working on behalf of the Delormes, carried out a structural analysis and 2 kilometres of localized magnetometer surveying approximately 3.5 kilometres northwest of the Quen occurrence.
