Molybdenum showings occur on the steep west side of the Clearwater River, 9 kilometres north of Clearwater in granitic rocks near the eastern edge of the Cretaceous Raft batholith. Molybdenite occurs as sparse flakes in felsite dikes, small rosettes in granodiorite, smears along fracture planes, and are also associated with a set of quartz veins which strike north 300 to 310 degrees and dip 30 to 55 degrees southwest.

Southwestern Potash Corporation held 55 recorded claims, including the Polly Ann 1-13, Betsy 1-17 and Sock 7-12. During 1964 a program of geological mapping and geochemical sampling was carried out. Diamond drilling, totalling 431 metres, was completed in two holes.
