Numerous gold-quartz veins are reported in the vicinity in the metavolcanics (Snowy Creek, 104P 014 and Bozo, 104P 076 on Snowy Creek).
The mouth of the creek was the most productive, as well as a high bench containing old channel deposits. Workings from 1874 to 1890 and from 1906 to 1910 produced in total 120 kilograms (4222 ounces) of gold. Snowy Creek was reported to be the richest placer in the Cassiar district.
