The Van Gils Prospect is approximately 3 kilometres south of the Bellbird Mine. The prospect is at the eastern end of the Wards lode horizon. Van Gils is a Cu-Ag anomaly, discovered in 1983.
The prospect outcrops at the surface as magnetite-chlorite-quartz rock, banded iron formation, and very rich malachite stained rocks. At depth quartz-sericite schist encloses banded iron formation, impure marble, quartzite-epidote beds, amphibolite, and quartz-tourmaline rock.
The lode horizon is calc-silicate rock, biotite rich schist, magnetite-quartzite-garnet schist, with apatite rich areas. Cu-Ag values are found with the garnet and biotite rich schists.
