The Rogers showing consists of quartz veins cutting Upper Triassic Nicola Group andesitic volcanic rocks close to the contact with diorite of the Late Triassic-Early Jurassic Iron Mask batholith. Five adits have been driven at intervals from the bottom of a low hill on which the showings occur, and a shaft sunk. Three of the adits did not reach the veins. The workings indicate that several parallel veins may be present.

Pits, cuts and adits expose northeasterly to easterly striking, variably dipping quartz veins from 25 to 61 centimetres wide. The veins are sparsely mineralized with tetrahedrite, malachite and azurite. Some localized outcrops are mineralized with chalcopyrite, pyrite, malachite and azurite mainly within limonitic pods and along fracture planes.

In 1983, rock samples taken from an old trench yielded up to 0.38 per cent copper, 24.0 grams per tonne silver and 1 gram per tonne gold (Assessment Report 11690).

The Feb claim covers ground that had been owned by Rolling Hills in the northern and eastern portions, and by Calico Silver and Gibbex to the south. In 1976, a soil survey (179) was carried out on behalf of New Denver Explorations Ltd. In 1989, Eureka Resources Inc. conducted a prospecting and geological mapping program on the Jaxd claims which covered the showings. In 1992, Getchell Resources Inc. completed 6 kilometres of ground magnetometer survey. In 1994-95, Teck Exploration Ltd. completed geological mapping, 3 kilometres of ground magnetometer survey and soil sampling (103) over the Jaxd and Jacko claims.
