The Twin Glacier occurrence is located north of the Iskut River approximately 115 kilometres northwest of Stewart and 65 kilometres west of Bob Quinn Lake (Highway 37), B.C.

The is underlain by marine sedimentary rocks and volcanic rocks of the Upper Triassic Stuhini Group. The area is intruded by Triasic to Tertiary rocks of the Coast Plutonic Complex.

Float within the Twin Glacier moraine shows considerable chalcopyrite, galena and pyrite. Similar float, most likely from a different source, was observed several miles to the southwest. At the same locality, veins up to 30 centimetres wide have been reported completely oxidized to gossan material.

In 1987, a set of orthophotographic maps were prepared for Northwest Gold Syndicate to cover the Rob 17 and 18 and Win 1 and 2 claims and a structural interpretation was completed.

In 1988, an exploration program was completed on the Win 2 and 8 mineral claims of Akiko-Lori Gold Resources Ltd. Work entailed geological mapping, prospecting, rock and soil sampling and a ground electromagnetic survey. A total of 102 rock samples and 725 soil samples were collected.

In 2010, Twin Glacier Resources Ltd. examined the area as the Twin Glacier property, controlled by Dolly Varden Silver Corporation. During July and August 2011 Twin Glacier Resources completed the helicopter supported prospecting program in the northern part of the Property. A total of six mineralized boulders were identified and sampled. Gold and silver values were low, however several samples returned moderately anomalous molybdenum, copper, and arsenic values (Assessment Report 32857). In 2012 a geostatistical report on the regional geochemistry and a SWIR-ASTER Analysis was done for the Twin Glacier property (Assessment Report 33397).
