The Well property is located east of Squirrel Lake and north of Canim Lake.

The area is underlain by a succession of interbedded hornblende basalt flows, fine- grained, banded volcaniclastic sediments, and aphanitic rhyodacite tuffs of the Upper Triassic Nicola Group. The bedded rocks strike from 188 to 285 degrees and dip from 38 to 85 degrees to the northwest. The entire assemblage is intruded by fine- to medium-grained hornblende diorite.

Locally, there are a number of small chalcopyrite occurrences within pyrite-rich Upper Triassic Nicola Group andesitic tuffs in the north-central part of the claim block. The mineralization may be related to a small syenite stock that intrudes the tuffs.

In 2014, rock samples yielded up to 0.139 gram per tonne gold and 0.036 per cent copper (Sample 1605556; Assessment Report 35199).

In 1975, Du Pont of Canada Exploration Limited conducted geochemical sampling and prospecting on the Well claims. In 2014 and 2016, Tech-X-Resources completed programs of rock and soil sampling, prospecting and geological mapping on the area as the Canim East property.
