A huge limestone quarry (~2 x 1 km) in the middle of the city of Montreal, formerly owned by Miron Co. Ltd., it is now owned by the city of Montreal. The Miron Quarry closed in the late seventies and has been used by the city of Montreal for garbage and land fill since 1968. An estimated 35 million tonnes of municipal waste was disposed here, making this one of the largest landfill sites in North America. Now about 80% of the quarry is full and is landscaped into a park, the rest is used for composting. The decomposition of organic materials in the 30-40 m thick landfill generate large quantities of "landfill gas" (mostly methane), which is collected by many kilometers of piping in the landfill and used as the fuel in a 25 MW power plant specially built at the site.

The limestone in the quarry is intersected by numerous igneous dykes and sills. Some of the sills are 3-5 m thick, but mineralized cavities in them are rare and very small, furthermore their mineralogy is unlike that of the nearby famous Francon quarry, which is <1 km to northeast. For instance none of Francon type minerals have been found here. However, the mineralogy of the sills and dykes was very poorly studied because no collecting was allowed during the operation of the quarry.
