Three copper showings occur within one kilometre to the west of the upper reaches of Ted Morris Glacier. This glacier is located about 8 kilometres east of the South Unuk River and 8 kilometres south of Sulphurets Creek.

The area is underlain by rock of the Jurassic Hazelton Group. The northeastern contact of the Eocene Lee Brant Stock is found about 2 kilometres west of this occurrence.

The northeastern-most showing reportedly contains pyrrhotite and 1 per cent copper. About 600 metres south of it, a pyritic showing contains some pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite and another showing, 400 metres west, contains up to 0.75 per cent copper. The host rock was not reported, but phyllonite was mapped just west of the occurrence area, diorite porphyry just east and sheared greywacke to the south (Newmont Exploration Ltd. - Geology map, Property File).

Two rock samples, separated by over a kilometre, contained 0.4 grams per tonne and 0.950 grams per tonne gold (Assessment Report 17404).

See Cumberland (104B 011) for details of the Corey property which encompasses these showings.
