In granite and granite pegmatite. Is a shaft 134 m deep, an adit, and several pits.

Underground exploration was conducted by Blue Rock Cerium Mines Limited from 1954 to 1956. They later amalgated with Rare Earth Mining Corporation of Canada Limited to form Rare Earth Mining Company Limited, which later changed to Rare Earth Resources Limited.

There was no production.
