The location of the Weaver Creek placer gold occurrence is poorly known; it is arbitrarily plotted on Weaver Creek just above the Highway 3/95 crossing.
Bedrock geology consists of Middle Proterozoic Aldridge Formation argillite and quartzite intruded by diorite of the Moyie intrusions (also part of the Middle Proterozoic Purcell Supergroup).
Weaver Creek has recorded production of 23,605 grams of gold over the period 1874 to 1930 (Bulletin 28, page 34). The gold is assumed to be contained within Tertiary glaciofluvial gravel and clay deposits.
In 1992-1994, 24 drill holes, totalling 398.1 metres, were completed to test the alluvial channel depth, width, longitudal gradient limits, bedrock type and contained gold values. Samples from drilling returned gold values ranging from trace to 12.1 grams per cubic metre (Assessment Report 24613).
