Madawaska Mine property (Bentley Lake Occurrence), Faraday Township, Hastings Co., Ontario, Canada
This is the locality for the large ilmenite and magnetite crystals mentioned in the Ontario issue of the Mineralogical Record (1982).
Such specimens are often labeled as being from the mine (Faraday or Madawaska), but they were actually found at a surface showing on the property, also known as the Bentley Lake Occurrence.
Robinson & Chamberlain (1982) report under Ilmenite that "Fine crystals of ilmenite weighing more than 30 kg have been found associated with magnetite, biotite, microcline and apatite in a small calcite vein-dike on the Madawaska mines property near Bancroft."
And later, under Magnetite: "The second [magnetite] occurrence is at the ilmenite locality on the Madawaska mines property, where hundreds of fine crystals have been removed."
