In granite pegmatite and calcite veins in pegmatite.

"The deposit was explored by several trenches (9 m to 60 m long) between 1944 and 1951 for radioactive mineralization. The work was done by West Lake Mining Company Limited. The openings, now partly overgrown, are located along the east slope and near the top of a ridge about 30 m south of highway 121 at a point 30 m west of the junction of Cheddar Road and Highway 121."
