The Elf area is underlain by a northwest trending belt of Mississippian to Devonian Earn Group shales unconformably overlying Ordovician to Devonian Road River Group rocks and Cambrian to Ordovician Kechika Group limestone. Massive stratified barite, with galena, sphalerite, and pyrite, interbedded with black shales of the Upper Devonian Gunsteel Formation (lower Earn Group), outcrops on the west side of Elf Creek valley. The mineralized horizon is at least 4 metres thick. Diamond drill holes (10) failed to extend the zone along strike.
