Feldspar mine in pegmatite, last worked ca. 1925.

On 15 July 1927, Arthur H. Chickering Jr. signed a mineral rights lease with the Whitehall Company on 85 acres of land near Walpole, New Hampshire (Cheshire County Registry of Deeds, Book 434 Pages 19-21). This lease was renewed on 1 June 1931 (Book 448 Page 558), and a quitclaim signed 14 December 1944 returning the property to Arthur H. Chickering Jr. (Book 512 Page 383). See also Page and Larrabee (1962).

Formula: Fe2+Al(PO4)(OH)2 · H2O
Description: SEM-EDS analysis per Tom Mortimer, pers. comm. 2006. Not eosphorite. But elemental ratios cannot be calculated from qualitative analyses. 2-09-09 New EDS study in 2009 by Peter Cristofono (lab: Kerry Day) found Fe/Mn ratio of 56/44. A study by Tom Mortimer (lab: Cannon Microprobe) found Fe/Mn ratio of 57/43 These results are consistent with childrenite. Eosphorite could also occur at the mine, but has not yet been verified.
