The Goat occurrence is located at the northern end of Hailstorm Ridge, at an elevation of approximately 2100 metres.

The area is underlain by highly deformed Triassic and older (?) volcanic and sedimentary rocks of and younger aplite and feldspar porphyry dikes, and granitic intrusions. The volcanic rocks are the oldest units and are tentatively assigned to the Slocan or Kaslo Group, while the younger sedimentary rocks are correlated with the Slocan Group.

Locally, an old pit or open-cut exposes a quartz vein with galena mineralization. In 1982, a sample yielded 0.75 gram per tonne gold (Assessment Report 11161).

The area has been historically explored since the late 1890’s in conjunction with the nearby Chieftain (MINFILE 082KSW054) mine. Past workings include an open-cut or pit. In 1982, the area was prospected and sampled by Esperanza Explorations as the Goat claim.
