The Ellen-Gizelle claim group is located 9.5 kilometres east of Bridge Lake, northwest of Little Fort.

Minor amounts of disseminated chalcopyrite and molybdenite, along with pyrite and pyrrhotite occur within dioritic plugs, dikes and sills that are spatially associated with the Triassic-Jurassic Thuya batholith, and within adjacent pyritic hornfels of Upper Triassic Nicola Group sedimentary rocks.

Orequest staked the claims and conducted geological mapping, geochemical and geophysical work over the area in 1972.
