This is a huge (1400 x 500 m) limestone quarry currently worked by the Lafarge Group. It was opened in 1909 by Canada Cement. The quarry is in Montréal-Est (Montreal-East) a separate municipality on the Island of Montreal. Montréal in the locality name refers to the Montréal TE (territory equivalent to an MRC or RCM), and not the city of Montreal.

The quarry was operated for some years by Francon Ltd., the same company that operated the famous Francon quarry, and for some time was also known as Francon Montréal-Est. This was the source of some confusion for collectors unfamiliar with quarries.

The limestone is intruded by an enormous dyke of camptonite up to 4-6 m thick (see photo), which is exposed for a length of over 1 km in the quarry. This dyke is remarkable for phenocrysts of kaersutite up to 10 cm in size. There are also alkaline sills (see photo) probably related to the Monteregian alkaline province (Mont St-Hilaire etc.). The minerals, typical for alkaline complexes, occur mostly in tiny cavities in the sills. This was the second known locality for weloganite.

The MRNF (Quebec Province's department of natural resources) provides the following description :

The strata which dip 3 degrees eastward belong to the Trenton Group (Tetreauville Formation). The compact, bluish-black limestone is in very regular beds up to 15 cm thick, separated by clay interbeds.
