The showing occurs in the creek below the E & L nickel prospect adit at 1355 metres elevation. It consists of a single quartz- sulphide vein in dacitic plagioclase porphyritic ash-lapilli tuffs of the Early Jurassic Betty Creek Formation. The quartz vein is eight centimetres wide and is exposed along strike for two metres. Mineralization consists of a central, 2 centimetre zone of massive and disseminated sulphides, chalcopyrite, pyrite, tetrahedrite, with secondary malachite and azurite.
An assay of a 2 metre chip sample along strike yielded 1500 grams per tonne silver, 3.15 per cent copper, and 0.082 grams per tonne gold (personal communication with Kirk Hancock, 1990). The showing was discovered by Geological Survey Branch geologists during mapping near the E & L prospect in 1989.
