This occurrence is located about 3 kilometres south of Divelbliss Creek on the west side of the South Unuk River. The area is underlain primarily by Upper Triassic volcanics which are probably correlative with the Stuhini Group. Dykes and small stocks of quartz feldspar porphyry, diabase, diorite of Tertiary age (?) are reported in the area. A northwest trending cataclasite zone is developed in the Lower Jurassic rocks along the trace of the South Unuk River.

A wide quartz vein carrying pyrite, chalcopyrite and galena occurs in unspecified country rock. High gold values were reported (Minister of Mines, Annual Report 1935, p. B11).

In 2006 and 2007, Hathor Exploration Ltd. completed a 7228.7 line-kilometre airborne geophysical survey on the area as the Gracey claims of the Iskut project. In 2008, Max Minerals Ltd. examined the property.
