In syenite and syenite gneisses. Exploration began in 1917 by W.E. Joiner. It carried on through 1936 by different companies. Ore shippments were sent to be tested and had insignificant MoS to be of value.

The mineralization occurs in an area of intercalated paragneiss and limestone intruded by tongues of monzonite and pegmatite. Molybdenite occurs in all rock types but appears to be concentrated at or near the intrusive contacts.
