The Wild Horse Creek property lies within the Kimberley Gold Trend, a zone that extends southwestward from the Rocky Mountains into the western part of the Purcell Mountains. In 1864 gold was discovered in Wild Horse Creek and the 720 km long trail known as the Dewdney Trail was started to connect Hope with the gold mining community known as Fisherville on Wild Horse Creek. More than 10 million ounces of gold is estimated to have been recovered from the gold bearing streams in the East Kootenay area and the locations of more than 50 gold showings have been recorded. Placer gold operations continue to this day on several gold bearing streams around Cranbrook. (from Seabrook and Hoy, 2015 Geoscience BC Roundup Poster).

The Wild Horse Creek claims cover several bedrock precious metal occurrences and potential source areas for the famous placer gold deposits. Several polymetallic silver-gold-lead-zinc and gold-quartz vein prospects occur on the claims. One of the most interesting prospects is the Lone 4 claim, where a 2016 diamond drill hole intersected elevated gold values in strongly hydrothermally altered rocks. The alteration intensity increases towards the bottom of the hole and the lower portion of the hole cored an auriferous breccia zone with gold values up to 3.26 grams per tonne gold over 1.0 meters (Assessment Report 36796). The results suggest that a source of the rich surficial gold placer deposits could be located on this claim.
