The Dobbin North showing is located 28 kilometres northwest of Kelowna, east of Dome Rock Mountain.

The area is underlain by argillaceous rocks, basalt tuffs and flows, minor rhyolite and limestone of the Devonian to Triassic Harper Ranch Group, which are intruded by Middle Jurassic monzonite of the informally named Terrace Creek Batholith.

Locally, chloritized and sericitized monzonitic rocks and garnet skarn (calcareous argillite) host quartz veinlets with disseminated pyrite and molybdenite.

In 1980, drilling samples yielded up to 0.039 per cent molybdenum over 3 metres and 0.016 per cent molybdenum over 53 metres (Assessment Report 8456).

In 1990, rock samples yielded up to 0.235 per cent molybdenum (Property File - Discovery Consultants [1990-09-01]: Map showing geology and geochemistry - Flop).

During 1979 through 1980, Cominco Ltd. carried out geological mapping, soil geochemistry and drill programs. The area was explored for gold mineralization in 1987, 1988 and 1990 by Chevron Minerals Ltd. and Inco Exploration and Technical Services Inc.
