In graphic granite pegmatite cutting hornblende gneiss.

"This was one of the first properties in the Bancroft area to be explored for radioactive minerals. Between 1932 and 1942, Canada Radium Mines Limited investigated the deposit for feldspar, quartz and radioactive minerals. The company sank a shaft to a depth of 122 m and installed a mill on the site. The mine was closed in 1942 after test runs were made."
