The area is underlain by metasedimentary rocks of the Shuswap Metamorphic Complex consisting of quartz-feldspar- hornblende gneiss, amphibolite, calc-silicate gneiss and minor quartzite and marble of unknown but probable Paleozoic age. The metasediments are cut by pegmatites and granitic intrusives.
The general structure of the area is composed of an east- facing succession folded into a broad open, east-plunging synformal structure. Locally the structures are complex resulting in dip reversals and repetition and omission of lithologies.
Massive sphalerite and minor galena and pyrrhotite occur as thin bands within flat lying siliceous calc-silicate. A number of drill holes intersected mineralization, up to 1.0 metre wide, of 25.8 per cent combined lead and zinc over a 400 metre north-south trend. Faulting locally displaces the minera- lization. No surface showings have been located thus far.
