The Ranger 4 occurrence is located in the western head waters of Truax Creek, approximately 2.3 kilometres northwest of Mount Truax.

The area is underlain by Mississippian to Jurassic Bridge River Complex (Group) siliceous cherty sediments, argillites, limestones and volcanics. This package is intruded by granodiorite plugs of the Cretaceous to Tertiary Bendor pluton and also contains masses of serpentinite. Porphyritic dykes, probably Tertiary, also cut these rocks.

Locally, basalt hosts a 12 centimetre wide arsenopyrite vein. In 1983, a sample (05346) assayed 0.125 per cent copper, 5.7 grams per tonne gold and 14.2 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 12416).

In 1975, a program of rock sampling, trenching and a ground magnetometer survey were completed on the area as the Bee claims. In 1981, a program of airborne geophysical surveys was completed on the area. In 1983 and 1984, Newmont completed programs of rock, silt and soil 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.
