The Toodoggone district, where the Sickle-Sofia property is located, has been the subject of exploration programs by major and junior companies since the 1960s, and is recognized for hosting significant copper-gold porphyries and epithermal gold-silver vein styles of mineralization.

During the late 1960s major companies such as Cominco and Kennco recognized the Toodoggone as an under explored copper-gold porphyry district. Initial prospecting and mapping was completed in the Black Lake, Shasta, Pine, Kemess North, Brenda and Sickle-Sofia areas during this time. In the early 1980s, Peralto Resources and Skylark Resources conducted geological and geochemical work on the nearby Kevin, Pil-Lar and Chess prospects. The Sickle-Sofia property was actively explored by several operators for its epithermal gold and silver potential following discovery and development of three gold-silver mines in the Toodoggone District (Baker, Lawyers, and Shasta).

For the past decade, the Toodoggone district has continued to be an active area of mineral exploration and an important district of gold and silver production. Most notable are the gold-rich porphyry-style deposits at Kemess North and Kemess South. The Kemess South mine is one of the lowest cost gold mines in the world, and in 2007 it produced 245,631 ounces of gold and 68.1 million pounds of copper (ref: www.northgateminerals.com).

In addition to porphyry deposits, the district has had many discoveries of other styles of mineralization, including high and low sulphidation epithermal deposits, deep-seated precious and base metal bearing stockworks and veins, and near-surface replacement-type gold mineralization. The Toodoggone contains one of British Columbia's largest past producing gold-silver mines (Lawyers), as well as smaller scale past producers (Shasta and Baker). Several gold deposits have documented resources and numerous other gold-silver-copper prospects are in various stages of exploration.
