Area: 276 sq km.Putnam puts the Pioneer Group as all the peaks starting "6 mi W of Mt Hamill [...] and extends some 6 mi in the direction of Kootenay Lake, from which the Wmost alpine-type peak is 5 mi distant. The area is bounded on the N by Hamill Creek and on the S by Fry-Carney Creeks."

He divides the group into a western and eastern wing, the eastern wing often being referred to as the Settler Group these days, which has its own entry.
