The Randy North occurrence is located between Chipman and Solly creeks, approximately 2 kilometres north- north west of the Lara (MNINFILE 092B 129) occurrence and has been explored in conjunction with it.

The area is underlain by a an anomalous package of felsic rocks of the Upper Devonian McLaughlin Ridge Formation, Sicker Group.

The zone consists of 3 to 6 zinc-rich weakly polymetallic horizons over a stratigraphic thickness of about 150 metres. These horizons consist of laminated light brown sphalerite and pyrite with subordinate chalcopyrite and trace tetrahedrite hosted by a strongly schistose quartz-eye rhyolite tuff (sericite-quartz schist).

In 1986 through 1988, Laramide Resources and Abermin Corp. completed programs of diamond drilling, geological mapping and geochemical sampling on the area as apart of the larger Lara Property. Diamond drilling intersected the zone which trends over a distance of 2 kilometres and down dip from surface to a depth of 180 metres. A 0.74-metre drill section assayed 0.052 per cent copper, 0.08 cent lead, 0.95 per cent zinc, 2 grams per tonne silver and 0.05 grams per tonne gold (Assessment Report 17857).
