Dios' gold properties are hosted within a low metamorphic geological sub-province at the southern contact with Opinaca highly metamorphic metasediments which contact hosts Eleonore major gold deposit.

Dios Exploration generates its own research projects and brings them to a certain stage of development and possibly farm them out to an eventual partner. Several diamond projects were developed over the years, and proprietary data gathered by DIOS also helped generate gold projects along the southern Opinaca contact as well as along the favourable Mistissini-Lemoyne Structure that hosts several kimberlites, including the Renard diamondiferous cluster and the Hotish 1 to 4 kimberlites of Dios.
