The Demers occurrence is located on the western slope of Mount Demers, approximately 1.5 kilometres east of Maid Lake.

The area is underlain by intrusive rocks, primarily quartz diorite and diorite, of the Paleozoic to Jurassic Westcoast Crystalline Complex.

Locally, areas of skarn host sulphide mineralization, primarily magnetite and chalcopyrite, and epidote alteration. In 2007, grab samples from trench 1, assayed up to 0.90 gram per tonne gold, 10.4 grams per tonne silver and greater than 1 per cent copper (Assessment Report 29419).

In 2012, a grab sample (12DMAO032A), from across the creek a short distance to the south, from a gossanous limonite shear with poddy pyrite and chalcopyrite assayed 0.20 per cent copper and 0.39 per cent zinc. Other samples (12DMAO047B and 12DMAO035A) of mineralized shear and quartz vein material, taken approximately 350 metres to the north west, assayed up to 0.86 gram per tonne gold and greater than 1.0 per cent zinc (Assessment Report 33846).

During 2006 through 2012, the area was prospected and sampled as the Maid 1-2 claims.
