The R5 occurrence is located on the east side of the east arm of Girl Creek, approximately 3.1 kilometres south-southeast of the creek mouth on Carpenter Lake.

The area is underlain by sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Mississippian to Jurassic Bridge River Complex (Group). On the property, the Bridge River Complex is represented by argillite, greenstone and chert, which is locally pyritic.

Locally, pyritic cherts with calcite fracture filling and minor greenstone host gold values.

In 1987, chip samples from the Road Cut R5 assayed up to 0.63 gram per tonne gold (Assessment Report 16637).

In 1983 and 1984, Newmont completed programs of geochemical sampling and geological mapping on the area as the Ranger 1-4 claims. During 1985 through 1988, Levon Resources completed programs of trenching, rock and soil sampling and airborne geophysical surveys on the area. During 1985 through 1987, Hoyle Resources completed programs of rock and soil sampling, geological mapping and trenching on the area as the LJ claim.
