The Nor 19 showing is 2.2 to 2.9 kilometres west of the south end of Bluey Lake and 6.55 to 7.35 kilometres northwest of the north end of Missezula Lake.

The occurrence is hosted in augite plagioclase porphyritic andesite and red volcanic breccia of the Upper Triassic Nicola Group (Central belt, Bulletin 69). The volcanics are mineralized with chalcocite, chalcopyrite, malachite and azurite in an area trending northwest for 800 metres. Chalcocite and chalcopyrite occur as disseminations and stringers over a length 76 metres in one prominent northwest-striking shear zone. Three rock samples spaced over a distance of 400 metres assayed as follows, from north to south: 0.436, 0.657 and 0.412 per cent copper respectively (Assessment Report 14141, Drawing 5b, samples 2293, 2284, 2086).
