Argillite on the dump has disseminated pyrite. The adit is at locality 98-10, while the shaft is at locality 98-9. Vein material is coarse white calcite with minor black, massive limonite and minor Cu silicate plus malachite crusts.

Local structures include minor fractures.

Workings include a shaft, a pit 15 meters NW of the shaft, and an adit 75 meters to the SE of the shaft. The workings are alligned along a N76W trend, which is approximately parallel to the large Silver Lily Dike, immediately to the north.
