Formerly: Molybdenite Occurrence, Highway 5 extension, Hull Township, Gatineau Co., Québec, Canada

Molybdenite-bearing calcite. One of many molybdenite occurrences in the area, but the only one having produced excellent specimens. Main calcite vein reached 20cm wide and contained the larger molybdenite crystals. Related veins, to 4cm wide, contained minor molybdenite on pyroxene and feldspar. The roadcut was exposed during the construction of this section of Autoroute 5 extension (Phase I) during 2008-2009.
