The Wolverine deposit is a polymetallic (zinc, lead, copper, gold and silver), volcanic hosted massive sulphide deposit (VMS deposit).

It is located in the Finlayson Lake District, Yukon Territory, Canada.

In 2007, Wolverine had the following mineral resources:
Total Measures and Indicated: 4,461,000 Tonnes at 12.14 % Zn, 1.16 % Cu, 1.58% Cu, 354 g/t Ag, 1.7 g/t Au
Inferred: 1,693,000 Tonnes at 12.16% Zn, 1.23% Cu, 1.74% Pb, 385 g/t Ag 1.7 g/t Au

The Wolverine deposit is a polymetallic volcanic hosted massive sulphide deposits hosted in the Finlayson Lake District with the mid-Devonian Wolverine Succession which consists of felsic volcaniclastics, fine carbonaceous and siliceous sediments, exhalative deposits, and sub-volcanic intrusions. Mineralization consists of two mound shaded zones called the wolverine zone and the lynx zone and consists of massive pyrite, sphalerite, galena, and chalcopyrite. Alteration around the deposit is zones with intense chlorite alteration in the footwall and intense sericite, quartz, and pyrite alteration in the hanging wall which weakens with distance from the deposit.

The Wolverine deposit is located approximately 270km from Whitehorse, Yukon territory Canada, and is accessible via all weather road from the Robert Campbell Highway.
