The Conway showing is located near the eastern margin of the Stikinia Terrane near the Gibraltar Mine (093B 012) in south central British Columbia.

The dominant rock types in the region are metabasalt, limestone and argillaceous metasediments of the Mississippian to Triassic Cache Creek Group. These are intruded by the dioritic to quartz dioritic Granite Mountain Pluton and the (?)Cretaceous Sheridan Creek Pluton. The Granite Mountain Pluton has been affected by regional metamorphism (greenschist facies) and deformation along with the enclosing Cache Creek Group.

This showing consisted of secondary copper minerals and chalco- pyrite associated with quartz veining. It is likely that the showing has been obliterated by mining operations of the Gibraltar Mine.
