The Stake 2 occurrence is located is near the eastern bank of Johnson Creek, approximately 500 metres north-northeast of its junction with Sinmax Creek.

Regionally, the area is underlain by andesitic and calc-alkaline volcanic rocks, greenstone and greenschist metamorphic rocks of the Lower Paleozoic to Mississippian Foghorn Mountain, Skwaam Bay and Forest Lake units of the Eagle Bay Assemblage. These units have a general strike of 090 degrees and dip of 40 degrees north.

Locally, a quartz vein hosted by chlorite schists is mineralized with galena and sphalerite with minor pyrite and chalcopyrite.

In 1977, a rock sample assayed 0.717 per cent lead and 0.430 per cent zinc (Assessment Report 6679).

In 1977, Cominco Ltd. completed a program of geological mapping and rock and silt sampling on the area as the Stake claims. During 1984 through 1987, Rialto Silver Resources Ltd. completed programs of rock, silt and soil sampling, geological mapping, ground geophysical surveys and four diamond drill holes, totalling 364.2 metres, on the area as the Ok 1-2 claims. In 1988, Minnova Inc. optioned the OK claims from Algo Resources Ltd. and completed a program of rock sampling, trenching and geological mapping.

In 2007 and 2008, Eagle Plains Resources completed programs of rock and soil sampling, geological mapping and airborne geophysical surveys on the area as the Acacia property. In 2011 and 2012, Vigilante Metals Inc. prospected and geochemically (rock and soil) sampled the area immediately southeast as the Inferno property.
