The Standard Location showing lies within the Barkerville Terrane of the Omineca Belt. The Barkerville Terrane is in thrust contact with Triassic Quesnellia Terrane rocks to the west and Hadrynian to Lower Paleozoic Cariboo Terrane rocks to the east. The Barkerville Terrane in this region is underlain by the dominantly metasedimentary rocks of the Hadrynian to Lower Paleozoic Snowshoe Group. In this area the Snowshoe Group comprises limestone, phyllite and quartzite. These rocks have been regionally metamorphosed to greenschist facies.
Quartzites with some interbedded thin layers of argillaceous schist underlie the claims. Cutting these rocks are three approxi- mately parallel quartz veins which strike at 030 to 035 degrees and dip 75 degrees west with widths up to about 1.5 metres. Early reports indicate the presence of pyrite, galena and visible gold in some of the quartz veins. However, later investigations report only pyrite mineralization with trace amounts of gold and silver.
