This occurrence is located about 1 kilometre to the west of Ted Morris Glacier and 7 kilometres east of the South Unuk River.

The area is underlain by metasediments of the Jurassic Hazelton Group. The eastern contact of the Eocene Lee Brant Stock is found less than 1 kilometre west of the showing. The stock is composed of quartz monzonite.

Three showings of chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite occur within 1.5 kilometre of each other at the same elevation along the west-southwest edge of Ted Morris Glacier. The easternmost showing occurs in an area of black phyllite. The central showing occurs as disseminations in an area of schistose argillites and sandstone, and the westernmost showing occurs in a quartz vein within unknown host rock (Newmont map).

A fourth showing occurs less than 400 metres southwest of the above quartz vein showing (at a lower elevation) consisting of chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite and up to 5 per cent pyrite (Newmont map).

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