Mining operations were commenced at Bluff point in 1881, but closed in 1883; resumed in 1886, but again discontinued the following year. In 1894 a few shipments of ore were made from stock piles to Radnor, Quebec, by the Canadian Iron Furnace Company. The following years a small amount of mining was done, but since 1901 the property has been idle. The total amount of ore shipped from the Bluff Point and Campbell mines is reported to have been about 9,000 tons.
