The Glengarry is located at the head of Boyd and Silvertip creeks, approximately 19 kilometres northeast of Trout Lake. The Glengarry group, consists of the Glengarry (Lot 1971), Prince Edward (Lot 1973) Banwell Fraction (Lot 1974) and Dewey. The Jim Dandy was adjoined to the southeast but was apparently not part of this group.

The Glengarry was located in 1892. Development work, done mainly in 1898, included a 7.6-metre crosscut adit and a 6.7-metre drift on the vein. The Glengarry and Prince Edward were Crown-granted to Lemuel Arthur in 1899 and the Banwell Fraction to C.E. Woods in the same year.

The area is underlain by rocks of the Lower Cambrian Badshot Formation and Cambrian to Devonian Index Formation (Lardeau Group). White limestone, quartzite and phyllite are reported to belong to the Badshot Formation. Limy phyllite containing minor dark grey or black limestone is correlated with the Index Formation. The strata strikes between 130 and 140 degrees with steep dips ranging from 80 degrees southwest to 70 degrees northeast.

A quartz and carbonate vein, up to 4.6 metres in width, contains up to 70 centimetres of galena with lesser chalcopyrite. The ore is reported to assay up to 3429 grams per tonne silver and 40 per cent lead (Minister of Mines Annual Report 1899, page 675). An unspecified amount of ore was shipped in 1899.

During 2006 through 2009, Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. completed programs of prospecting, geochemical (soil, silt, talus fines and rock) sampling and an airborne geophysical survey on the area as the Kootenay Arc property.

In 2008, an 0.8 metre chip sample (RMK8051-52) from galena bearing veins within a pit located south east of a tunnel assayed 420 grams per tonne silver, 18.90 per cent lead, 1.49 per cent zinc and 0.023 per cent tin (Fingler, J. (2010-01-25): Technical Report on the Kootenay Arc Property).
