The High Peak occurrence is located approximately 1 kilometre southeast of Bootleg Mountain, at an elevation of approximately 2200 metres.
The area is underlain by argillites and quartzites of the middle Proterozoic Aldridge Formation (Purcell Supergroup). These have been intruded by gabbro sills and dikes of the middle Proterozoic Moyie Intrusions.
Locally, a diorite hosts fractured quartz veining with sparse chalcopyrite mineralization. Malachite and azurite are also reported.
An ore dump of unknown age, containing approximately 10 tonnes of material, is reported. No signs of an adit could be found. In 1983, Trans-Arctic Explorations completed a ground electromagnetic survey on the area immediately south as the P.C. 1 claim. The following year a program of geological mapping was completed. In 1985 and 1986, Amstar American completed programs of geological mapping, soil and rock sampling and ground and airborne geophysical surveys on the area as the Bootleg and High Peak claims. In 1996, Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. and Miner River Resources Ltd completed a two-day geological reconnaissance program consisting of stream sediment sampling and prospecting. In 2011 and 2012, the area was prospected and sampled as the Wilcum property by DW Exploration. Also, in 2011, a gravity survey was completed on the area immediately to the north.
