The property is located on the north side of Little Lichen Mountain, approximately 21.5 kilometres north of the community of Scotch Creek.
The area is underlain by sediments and volcanics of the Eagle Bay Formation of Devonian-Mississippian age.
The dominant structural trend in the area is 060 degrees with moderate (25-30 degree) dips to the northwest.
Phyllitic sediments intercalated with dolomitized and silicified carbonates are overlain by a highly pyritic chlorite schist. Separating the two units is a thin (0.5 metre) conform- able calc-silicate alteration zone.
Cutting the phyllitic sediments is a 6 by 9 metre, north- trending, quartz stockwork containing disseminations and irregular pods of galena, sphalerite and pyrite. The stockwork has a sooty black exposed surface. A 1.7 metre chip sample assayed 700 grams per tonne silver, 10.4 per cent lead, 3.53 per cent zinc and 0.6 gram per tonne gold (Bachelor, 1984).
In 1988, a 1.5 metre chip sample returned 0.31 gram per tonne gold, 1498.4 grams per tonne silver, 17.98 per cent lead and 5.30 per cent zinc (EMPR Property File - Kane, C.C. (1989-05-15): Report on Proposition for Silver Lichen claims). In 1991, two drill holes, totalling 209.1 metres, were completed to test the down dip stratigraphy. No values were reported.
