The Pika property is located on a wooded ridge in the Muskwa Ranges of the Rocky Mountains, 210 kilometres west-northwest of Fort St. John.

Sparse outcrops of copper mineralization are reported (Assessment Report 4197) to occur in the area of a 120-metre long geochemical soil anomaly (values up to 1240 parts per million copper). Chlorite and sericite schists, probably of the Middle Ordovician to Middle Devonian Road River Group, outcrop on the property. Outcrop is sparse and recent maps show the area to be underlain by the Cambrian to Ordovician Kechika Group which consists of wavy banded limestone, argillaceous limestone and calcareous shale. No other information is available on the occurrence.

In 1972, Buckhorn Mines Ltd. conducted a geochemical soil survey over the central part

of the Pika property.
