The Spider occurrence is 1.5 kilometres northwest of Deer Lake. It was uncovered during construction of a new logging road in December 1997. The new road passes across the north and east ends of Spider Lake, east of Deer Lake. Along the east side of Spider Lake the road intersects several northeast trending quartz-carbonate alteration zones, and small lenses of pyrite with chalcopyrite and galena hosted in pyroxene lapilli tuff and agglomerate of the Upper Triassic Nicola Group. The quartz-carbonate veins and stockwork resembles some of the mineralization on the AA claims (092P 137) to the north (Assessment Report 25894).
