In skarn zone in crystalline limestone and amphibolite.

"Work on this deposit began in 1901 when Mineral Range Iron Mining Company developed it with two open-cuts. In 1913 it was re-opened by Canada Iron Mines Limited which produced 8752 t of magnetite ore averaging 38.7 per cent iron. Some diamond drilling and surface work were done on the property in 1941 by Frobisher Exploration Company, Limited. The workings consist of three open cuts and several trenches."
