The Flan occurrence is located east of Schoen Creek, approximately 5.5 kilometres south of Schoen Lake.

Regionally, the area is underlain by Upper Paleozoic limestones exposed in low lying areas east of the claims. The limestones are overlain by the informally named Daonella beds, a Middle Triassic unit of black shale and siliceous tuffaceous cherts that is in turn overlain by the Karmutsen basalts, a thick pile of pillowed and massive subaqueous to subaerial lavas. Intrusive rocks include Lower to Upper Triassic diabase sills (emplaced mainly in the Daonella beds) and later, large Jurassic granodiorite plutons.

Locally, thin, steep, gold-bearing, vuggy quartz-sulphide veins cut steeply across a 30-centimetre-wide epidote-chlorite, pyrite, sphalerite and chalcopyrite vein in a fault zone cutting a gabbro sill hosted by Paleozoic cherts. Fine grains of electrum are reported to occur with chalcopyrite and are associated with high gold values (Assessment Report 30009).

In 2000, sampling of vuggy quartz veins yielded up to 67.8 grams per tonne gold, 25.7 grams per tonne silver and 0.554 per cent copper (Assessment Report 26793).

In 2007, sampling of several large boulders, located near the showing, yielded values up to 135.09 grams per tonne gold, 71.4 grams per tonne silver and 4.53 per cent copper (Assessment Report 29360).

In 2012, a talus fragment sample (1415801) from the occurrence area assayed 83.5 grams per tonne gold, 65 grams per tonne silver and greater than 1.0 per cent copper (Assessment Report 33661).

In 2014, till fragment samples (1415776 and 1415777) of chloritic and gossanous gabbro with sulphides assayed 18.6 and 35.6 grams per tonne gold, respectively (Assessment Report 35473).

Work History

During 2000 through 2014, M. Schau, later with Interwest Enterprises Ltd., conducted numerous programs of geochemical (soil, silt and rock) and biogeochemical sampling, ground magnetic and electromagnetic surveys, trenching, geological mapping and prospecting on the area as the Flan-Consolidated property.
