The Tony occurrence is located approximately 1 kilometre east of Kennedy Lake and 2.4 kilometres north-northwest of the past producing Brynnor Mine (MINFILE 092F 001) and 16 kilometres northeast of Ucluelet, B.C.

A 100 metre thick band of limestone of the Upper Triassic Quatsino Formation occurs within granodiorite of Early to Middle Jurassic Island Plutonic Suite. Altered andesite dikes of the Early to Middle Eocene Tofino Intrusive Suite (previously Catface Intrusions) intrude the contact area and form a zone containing garnet and pyroxene mineralization.

Locally, an interbanded lense of magnetite, pyrrhotite and arsenopyrite occurs at the limestone-andesite contact. A 0.366 metre chip sample assayed 3.8 grams per tonne gold, 0.47 per cent copper, 2.6 grams per tonne silver and 18.54 per cent iron (Assessment Report 14704).

In 1984, Intercon Petroleum Inc. completed a program of geological mapping and geochemical sampling on the KSAG claims. In 1986, First Coast Min. completed a program of prospecting and geochemical sampling on the area as the Tony claim. In 1992, Can. Wes. Res. completed a reconnaissance program of geological mapping and geochemical sampling for high purity Quatsino limestone in the area as the Mike claim.

During 1995 through 2009, Consolidated Logan Mines Limited and later Logan Resources Limited, completed programs of prospecting, geological mapping, geochemical sampling and an induced polarization survey on the Lucky and Redford properties.

In 2011, Logan Resources Ltd. and joint venture partner Ridgemont Iron Ore Corp. conducted ground geophysics (including Tony) and drilling over the Redford property. The 2011 Ridgemont diamond drill program, east of Draw Creek and the Brynnor Pit, consisted of 61 holes totalling 10, 234.58 metres utilizing 29 drill pads. The program coverage was categorized into three zones: the Main, East and North zones. The drill results from the East zone confirmed that magnetite mineralization was similar in strike and dip to that found in the Main zone.
