Notes on the mineral list:

1) Rockbridgeite supposedly collected here in 1936 by Arthur Kingsbury (1906-68) is now considered "discredited" and almost certainly from Rockbridge, USA. This is one of a number of likely or definitely falsified Kingsbury localities.

2) Ajoite is listed for this locality, but not confirmed, see http://www.mindat.org/mesg-7-61822.html
