Arlington is located in the Arrow Boundary District of south-central B.C. and covers ground just north of the historic Beaverdell Mining camp and the past producing Carmi mine. The project hosts 10 Minfile occurrences that are associated with structurally controlled polymetallic Ag-Cu- Pb-Zn +/- Au veins. In this deposit style, mineralization can occur in virtually any host and forms steeply dipping, narrow tabular to splayed veins and commonly occur as sets of parallel and offset veins.
