The Why 2 showing is located 13 kilometres west of Okanagan Lake and 25 kilometres west of Vernon adjacent to the Brett prospect (082LSW084).
The area is underlain by Middle Jurassic granodiorite and remnant andesitic rocks of the Eocene Penticton Group which have been intruded by Eocene Coryell granites and syenites.
Mineralization consists of gold values in narrow quartz veins. The veins occur in granodiorite near the base of the Tertiary. The veins, up to 25 centimetres wide, and wallrocks are anomalous in gold. One 25 centimetre vein assayed 2.49 grams per tonne gold and 1.9 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 18865, sample Z-88-R-801). The best sample from trenching assayed 0.209 gram per tonne gold over 6 metres in trench 4 (Assessment Report 18865). This showing is probably the southerly extension of the Boul showing (082LSW069).
Mapping, sampling, geochemical and geophysical surveys and trenching were carried out in 1988 for Atlanta Gold Corp. by Discovery Consultants. During 2014 through 2016, the area was held and explored by Ximen Mining Corp. as the Brett Gold property and a complete summary of exploration work can be found at the Brett (MINFILE 082LSW110) occurrence.
