The 100% owned October Dome property is located 6 kilometres west of the town of Likely in the Cariboo Mining Division of British Columbia. The October Dome gold project forms part of Bearing's larger landholdings in the area which are adjacent with both Imperial Metals Corporation's Mount Polley porphyry copper-gold mine property (10 kilometres to the south) and Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd.'s QR skarn gold mine property (7 kilometres to the northwest).

The target area is extensively covered by overburden with limited bedrock exposure comprised of diorite and syenite intrusions and sediments. The drill program is expected to be completed in September.
