Late Devonian intrusive rocks of the McLymont Plutonic Suite form a large mass on the southeast of the Newmont fault. The fault is the southeast bounding fault of the McLymont graben. The BC showing occurs about 1 kilometre southeast of the fault.
Mineralization consists of a stockwork or network of barite stringers mineralized with varying amounts of chalcopyrite and rarely molybdenum, This zone extends across an area at least 100 x 200 metres in size. Individual stringers/veins vary from less than 1 cm to 30 cm and can be followed for over 100 metres along strike. Host rocks to this zone appear to be of andesitic composition in close proximity to granitic intrusive rocks.
One rock sample assayed 1.2 grams per tonne gold, 2 grams per tonne silver and 3.45 per cent copper; another assayed 0.21 gram per tonne gold, 10.8 grams per tonne silver and 26.6 per cent copper (samples 31988 and 31740, Assessment Report 21006).
The Kerr 1-4 claims were staked in late October, 1987 by Pamicon Developments Ltd who followed up in 1988 with a small assessment work program. No previous work or mineral occurrences were known at the time. A total of 21 man-days were spent prospecting the claims and an additional 32 units were staked. Minimal work was done in 1989 by Pamicon. In 1990, Consolidated Caprock Resources Ltd conducted a prospecting and sampling program, collecting a total of 524 rock chip samples and 269 soil samples on the Kerr 1-6 claims; 14.7 km of ground magnetics and VLF-EM were also completed.
See Northwest (104B 281) for details of work after the amalgamation of tenures by Romios Gold Resources Inc in the 2000s, when airborne geophysics was done over significant land areas and site specific work on various showings.
