The Lo occurrence is situated in the Kwanika Range near the headwaters of Halobia Creek, approximately 51 kilometres east-southeast of Takla Landing. The area was the subject of a program of soil geochemistry undertaken by Noranda Exploration in 1972.

The Halobia Creek area is underlain by mesozonal plutonic rocks assigned to the Late Triassic to Early Cretaceous Hogem Intrusive Complex which have intruded volcanic and sedimentary rocks of the Middle Triassic to Lower Jurassic Takla Group east of the Pinchi fault zone. The plutonic rocks form an elongate batholith, extending from Chuchi Lake, north to the Mesilinka River.

The only reference to the Lo occurrence describes chalcopyrite mineralized fractures and disseminations in syenodiorite (Geology, Exploration and Mining in British Columbia 1972, page 448).

No recent information concerning this occurrence is available.
