Limited information described this occurrence only as sphalerite in a boxwork of veinlets found in float (DeYoung, 1978). The area is is mapped as peraluminous biotite-muscovite granite of the Baby Creek batholith. It is a few miles northeast of the Geroe Creek porphyry Cu-Mo property (CH053) and adjoins an unidentified large claim block (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1973) that is immediately northeast of the Geroe Creek prospect.
