The Golden Crown showing is located on the east bank of the Similkameen River, just south of its confluence with the Pasayten River and 34 kilometres south-southwest of Princeton.
This area is underlain by schistose metasediments and metavolcanics derived from the Upper Triassic Nicola Group. These units generally strike northwest, roughly paralleling the contact with the Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous Eagle Plutonic Complex to the west.
A 21-metre long adit, driven mostly through overburden and broken or loose rock, encountered quartz mineralized with bornite. A considerable amount of this material was removed from the adit. The vein from which this material originated was reported not to be visible in the face of the adit. Sorted ore at the adit dump averaged about 2 per cent copper (Minister of Mines Annual Report 1901, page 1174). High values in gold and silver are also reported.
This showing was explored by Bonnevier and Pouwels in 1901.
