The property is underlain by the Shuswap Metamorphic Complex with granite intrusives. Foliation and schistosity is north- northwest with moderate to steep dips east and west. Pegmatites cut all rock types except a quartz monzonite. Andesite dykes cut all rocks.
The metamorphic rocks are divided into 3 units: quartz- feldspar-biotite gneiss; rusty weathering quartz sericite schist and minor amphibole; and a mixed sequence of quartzo feldspathic schists and gneisses, striped hornfels, and skarn and lesser amphibolite.
Several occurrences of chalcopyrite with pyrite and pyrrhotite occur within mixed bands of skarn, hornfels and amphibolite. A 12 metre wide zone, traced intermittently for about 30 metres on strike consists of disseminated chalcopyrite and disseminated to semi-massive pyrrhotite in skarn lenses. Molybdenite in quartz veins cuts these rocks. A 7 metre sample across the zone assayed 0.34 per cent copper, 0.094 per cent molybdenum, 0.01 per cent WO3, and 2 grams per tonne silver.
Three hundred metres to the south, a 400 by 125 metre, north west trending zone of several molybdenite showings occur within mixed, banded skarn and hornfels, cut by narrow quartz stringers. The molybdenite occurs as coarse flakes within the quartz veins and disseminated throughout the skarn.
The chalcopyrite is likely related to basic tuffs and calca- reous sediments from which the amphibolite and skarn were derived. The molybdenite was likely introduced with late stage silica vein fillings.
