From Minfile 092P055: A total of 5.475 kilograms (176 ounces) of placer gold was reported to have been recovered from gravels in the lower reaches of Eakin Creek between the early 1920s and the late 1930s (Bulletin 28). Some of the gold was reportedly quite coarse (Minister of Mines Annual Report 1931), with good nuggets being obtained from the gravel/bedrock interface. In Geological Survey of Canada Summary Report 1921 Part A, it is suggested that the placer gold may have been derived from a resistant conglomerate member in the Eocene Chu Chua Formation, which formed a gorge directly above the original workings. Later authors (Minister of Mines Annual Report 1926; Fieldwork 2000, page 26) consider the more likely source to be the bedrock gold occurrences that are now known to be present in crystalline hostrocks higher in the Eakin Creek drainage basin.

There are a number of gold showings in bedrock, in the area, including the Hidden Canyon showing which underlies the property itself: Minfile 092P013
