The Arsenault showing is 3.5 kilometres southeast. The Crinkle Quartzite locality is below tree line about 2 kilometres west of the old exploration camp where a few chalcopyrite veins up to a centimetre thick occur within the upper third of a 10-metre cliff exposure of crinkle quartzite of the Paleozoic Big Salmon Complex. No signs of prior sampling are evident.
