A.K.A. Chaput-Payne Mine, Eardley, Pontiac Co., Québec, Canada

The Chaput-Payne mine was a World War I molybdenite prospect (used in the manufacture of armor plating) but records do not indicate if there was any actual production. A part of a vast and unusual occurrence of calcite vein-dykes that cut the southern part of Canadian Precambrian shield, it is famous for its large crystals of molybdenite, mica (phlogopite), pyroxene (diopside), amphibole (actinolite), titanite, pyrite, and uraninite. It is now part of Gatineau park and so, sadly, closed to collecting.
