The July property is 5.5 kilometres northwest of the village of Eagle Creek on Canim Lake. The main showing is about 500 metres north of the east end of Roger Lake. The Beer showing (092P 125) is also on the July claims. Pyrite, chalcopyrite and bornite mineralization occurs as clots and as disseminated and impregnated grains in syenitic dikes which intrude a contact breccia zone between Triassic to Jurassic Takomkane batholith granite and Upper Triassic Nicola Group metavolcanics. Magnetite is present in all but the most leucocratic of the intrusive phases on the property, and occurs as pods, veinlets and disseminations.

F.R. Gatchalian staked the July claims in July 1972 and conducted geological mapping, soil geochemical sampling and a ground magnetic survey. During this work, claim posts and flagging were found that indicated that the area had been staked and worked as the RL group in 1969 by Royal Canadian Ventures, and as the Nod group by Texas Gulf Sulfur in 1971. The Beer showing had been covered by a number of claims and trenched by Aragon Exploration Limited in 1970. In 1990, Princeton Mining Corporation extended their grid northwards from the Clay property (092P 155), then called the Robby Group. The extension included the Ski 1 claim, which included the July property. The extension was subsequently dropped.
