The LDM 9 occurrence is located near the north east side of Wuhun Lake.

The area is underlain by siltstone, argillite and quartzite of the mid-Proterozoic Creston Formation (Purcell Supergroup). These have been regionally metamorphosed to greenschist facies and have been intruded by gabbro to diorite sills and dikes of the mid-Proterozoic Moyie Intrusions.

Locally, quartz veins in sediments host pyrite with limonite-hematite staining.

In 1991, two rock samples (52189 and 52194) yielded 1.07 and 1.57 grams per tonne gold, respectively (Assessment Report 21863).

During 1987 through 1991, Chapleau Resources completed programs of silt, soil and rock sampling, trenching, geological mapping, a 14.8 line-kilometre combined ground electromagnetic and magnetic survey and a 200 line-kilometre airborne geophysical survey on the area as the Racki and LDM claims.
