This locality was visited on November 15th, 2011.
Revisited April 19, 2014 : The quarry doubled in size, but no minerals were found.

The following was drawn from the "fîche de gîte" (Deposit File) of the MRNF (Ministère des ressources naturelles et de la faune) :

The Chatham-Grenville Syenite is coarsely grained, with an orange-brown color due to the prominence of hematized potassic feldspar. In the West part of the quarry, the rock is rather grey.

No mineralisation was observed, except for a partly smokey quartz veinule crossing the stripped-out top of the quarry.

Visite de la localité le 15 novembre 2011.
Revisitée le 19 avril 2014, la carrière a doublé en superficie, mais aucune minéralisation n'a été aperçue.

Les données suivantes ont été tirées de la fîche de gîte du MRNF (Ministère des ressources naturelles et de la faune) :

La syénite de Chatham-Grenville est à grain moyen, et de couleur brun orangé en raison de la prédominance du feldspath potassique hématisé. Dans la partie ouest de la carrière, la couleur de la pierre est plutôt grise.

Aucune minéralisation n'a été observée, hormis une longue veinule de quartz partiellement enfumé traversant le sommet dénudé de la carrière.
