The property is situated in the central portion of the east-west trending Destor-Porcupine fault system within the prolific Abitibi Greenstone Belt. This Archean age belt forms part of the Superior Craton and is approximately 800 km long and 240 km wide. The belt is typically comprised of predominately volcanic rocks with lesser sedimentary and intrusive rocks cut by occasional Proterozoic diabase dikes.
Bedrock exposures consist of a series of south-facing basalt flows including massive, pillowed and locally flow top breccias. The basalts are fine grained locally with porphyritic or amygdaloidal section and are relatively undeformed. In outcrop, they weather to a buff-brown or light green colour, while on fresh surface colour varies from green to dark green. Calcite and epidote veinlets are common. The basalts have been classified by Jensen, 1978 to be tholeiitic, varying from magnesium to iron-rich. In drilling, the basalts are altered when spatially associated with major fault structures. Alteration includes pervasive carbonization and silicification with local section of sericitization.
