The Jack showing is located on the west bank of Jack of Clubs Creek, 6 kilometres south of the town of Wells. It consists of a quartz vein that is mineralized with pyrite and galena. The vein is 30 centimetres wide, dips steeply to the southeast, and is hosted by silicified and veined quartz phyllite of the Snowshoe Group. It was located during regional mapping by the BC Geological Survey Branch in 2002 (EMPR FIELDWORK 2002, pages 77-96). A sample of mineralized vein material contained 0.3 per cent lead, 3.7 grams per tonne silver and 0.34 grams per tonne gold.
