The area surrounding the Liesegang showing is underlain by volcanic rocks of the Early to Middle Jurassic Entiako Formation of the Hazelton Group. The occurrence consists of a float boulder of epidote, quartz, carbonate vein material with up to 3 per cent native Cu and trace malachite. The same epidote, quartz, carbonate veins occur in outcrop crosscutting amygdaloidal basalt. The basalt contains exceptionally well developed Liesegang rings. A grab sample from the boulder yielded 2.811 per cent Cu and 7.047 grams per tonne Ag (Geoscience BC Report 2016-1).
