In calcite vein cutting hornblende granite.

"The deposit was exposed by a trench 33 m long, 2 m wide and 2 to 3 m deep in a clearing north of the Old Mumford Road."

This property is currently under claim to the Municipality of Highlands East, from whom permission is required to collect minerals at the site. The Municipality welcomes collectors, and permission may be easily obtained from the Municipal office on Loop Road in Wilberforce during regular business hours, or from Agnew's General Store, which is also open weekends.
