Gold mineralization in the Bellechasse area occurs in quartz/carbonate veins in albite diorite and related intrusive rocks, and also in minor amount in the veins within the volcanoclastic rocks that host the diorite.

The area in which mineralization is known measures approximately 875 metres along 045° and approximately 650 metres across the regional strike. Gold-bearing zones consist in quartz-filled structures which locally exhibit stockwerk pattern and may be brecciated. They are known to develop in plug-like protrusions of diorite emplaced in the country rock (T1 Zone) and in larger diorite masses (T2 Zone).
