The occurrence is located on an un-named creek flowing into Narcosli Creek, near Webster Lake and 31.5 kilometers south west of Quesnel.

Locally, outcrops of basalt and intermediate composition Tertiary flows are common. At least three areas of intrusive rocks are known. Two of these areas contain a biotite quartz diroite and the other a granodiorite.

In 1991, geochemical sampling of the creek returned anomalous values in gold along a five kilometer section. Five of the samples ran higher than 1000 parts per billion gold and as high as 6820 parts per million gold (Property File Rimfire Burton, A., 1991).
