Ref.: Geological Survey of Canada Miscellaneous Report 39.

In syenite and granitic pegmatite dykes cutting syenite and granite gneiss.

The deposit was explored by numerous pits and trenches for radioactive mineralization. The work was done in 1956-1957 and in 1967-1968 by Eagles Nest Mines Limited. Sabina references openings on the north side of a ridge the extends northeastward from The Eagles Nest, a bald cliff overlooking the York River.

Although access to this occurrence is commonly by way of Eagles Nest Park Rd., in the town of Bancroft (Faraday Tp.), the majority of the workings are in Dungannon Tp. Please add any photos and info for this locality here. Although access is by way of the Town of Bancroft, and a small part of the showings are in Faraday Tp. (western tip of the Mountain Zone), the majority of the property explored by Eagles Nest Mines Limited is in Dungannon Tp. Please use the link below to redirect to the main page.
