The X showing is 2.2 kilometres west of the Similkameen River and 11.5 kilometres southwest of Princeton.

This occurrence is hosted in volcanic breccia and agglomerate of the Upper Triassic Nicola Group.

The volcanics contain minor chalcopyrite, as disseminations, and in small quartz veins. A series of grab samples from a trench assayed trace gold, 2.1 to 2.7 grams per tonne silver and trace to 0.01 per cent copper (Property File - R.G. Jury, 1971, page 3).
