In granite and granite pegmatite intruding marble.

A shaft (200 m), adit, and several trenches were developed. Originally explored in 1948 by Lead Ura Mines Limited which was renamed Rare Earth Mining Corporation of Canada Limited in 1951. This company carried out underground exploration until 1956. Later amalgated with Blue Rock Cerium Mines Limited who owned Rare Earth Mine No 2. Later the name was changed from Rare Earth Mining Company Limited to Rare Earth Resources Limited.
There was no production.
