The Nim showing is located within the Late Triassic-Early Jurassic Guichon Creek batholith. The showing comprises disseminated chalcopyrite in Bethlehem phase granodiorite.

In 1967-69, a grid, soil geochemical survey and seven bulldozer trenches totalling 369 metres were completed on behalf of New Indian Mines Ltd. Also in 1969, Consolidated Gem Explorations Ltd. conducted a geological mapping program on the Mer property (092INW028) which overlapped onto the Nim claims. In 1970, an induced polarization survey was completed on behalf of Lornex Mining Corporation Limited.
