The Pacific Fort St. John No.44 well is located 47 kilometres north-northeast of the town of Fort St. John.

A 15-centimetre zone of coarse crystalline barite veins, hosted in cryptocrystalline dolomite, was intersected by drilling to a depth of 1926 metres, 9 metres below the overlying Triassic contact. Minor glauconite and pyrite are hosted in this Permian to Pennsylvanian dolomite above and below the zone.
