Historical work conducted on the Topley Richfield Property includes over 10,000 metres of drilling, multiple ground based geophysical and geochemical surveys, and historical production from two underground levels, started in 1927.

Historical production and exploration was focused on a polymetallic vein system which remains open along strike to the south, and open down plunge. Pacific Empire has identified peripheral copper, both plus and minus gold porphyry targets to the east and west of the polymetallic vein system that remain underexplored.
