The Labow Vein showing, formerly called Howey Bay showing or Howey Mines - Lewis Labow option, is a discretionary occurrence located in the northwestern part of the Howey diorite, close to the eastern edge of the Dome Stock. The auriferous veins consist of quartz, pyrite and gold. Visible gold have been observed in trenches around the Labow vein but no assay results have been reported (Mineral Deposit Inventory, Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry).

The McKee showing is an occurrence in the Howey diorite. The diorite contains several small slivers of mafic volcanic rocks in this area. The auriferous quartz veins are hosted by the mafic volcanic rocks. The quartz veins are 20 to 25 cm wide; smaller stringers also occur (Mineral Deposit Inventory, Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry).
McKee North Showing
The McKee North discretionary occurrence is hosted by Howey diorite and slivers of mafic volcanic rocks within the diorite. Small auriferous quartz veins are hosted by the mafic volcanics (Mineral Deposit Inventory, Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry).
