The Peak 7724 occurrence is located on an un-named peak west of Fishem Lake, on a ridge running sout east of peak.

The area is underlain by calc-alkaline volcanics and sedimentary rocks of the Lower Cretaceous Tchaikazan River succession and undivided volcanic rocks of the Upper Cretaceous Powell Creek Formation. These have been intruded by feldspar porphyritic rocks of the Late Cretaceous Anvil Mountain suite.

Locally, disseminated chalcopyrite with malachite, rare pyrite and minor azurite mineralization is hosted in oxidized sediments and as fracture coatings in a nearby feldspar porphyry and quartz-feldspar porphyry intrusive rocks over a distance of approximately 1 kilometre in a northwest-southeast direction. In 1982, samples yielded up to 0.231 per cent copper (Assessment Report 10774).

The area has been historically explored in conjunction with the nearby Charlie (MINFILE 092O 043) occurrence. During 1981 through 1983, Suncor Resources completed programs of rock, silt and soil sampling, geological mapping and ground geophysical surveys on the area as the Cougar claims. In 1998, Pellaire Gold Mines completed a program of rock, silt and soil sampling on the area. In 1999, NWC Explorations completed a program of geochemical sampling, geological mapping, a 188 line-kilometre airborne geophysical survey and three diamond drill holes, totalling 660.3 metres, on the area as the Northwest Copper property. In 2005, Galore Resources completed a program of soil sampling, a 61.8 line-kilometre ground geophysical survey and a 188 line-kilometre airborne geophysical survey on the area. In 2008, Valor Resources completed a program of geochemical sampling and geological mapping on the area. The following year, program of rock, silt and soil sampling was completed. During 2009 through 2014, Zelon Chemicals completed programs of rock, soil and biogeochemical sampling, minor trenching and a ground geophysical survey on the area.
