The Norma occurrence is located on the north side of Lindsey Creek, approximately 3 kilometres north east of the community of Gold Bridge.

The area is underlain by marine sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Mississippian to Jurassic Bridge River Complex.

Locally, quartz-calcite-pyrite veins, 1 to 10 centimetres in width, parallel schistosity in altered and sheared andesite-basalt volcanics. Quartz-carbonate alteration is extensive in the cherts and argillites. To the south west, rocks of the Bridge River Complex are sheared and silicified with abundant hematite staining.

An old, pre-1937 adit is located near the centre of the Norma claim in the area of intense alteration. It is reported to have been driven along a strike fault or a vein paralleling the formational strike, which is north-south. Just south of the claim block, another adit is reported to have been driven eastward around the same time. In 1980, Solitaire Resources prospected the area as the Buck II claim. In 1985, Levon Resources completed a program of soil sampling, geological mapping and ground electromagnetic and magnetic surveys on the area as the Big Apple 1 claim. In 1986, Brahma Resources completed a program of geological mapping and soil sampling on the area as the Norma claim. In 2003 and 2005, E. Skoda completed programs of soil sampling and ground electromagnetic and magnetic surveys on the area as the Bridge claim. In 2012, the area was prospected and sampled as the Norma Adit claim.
