The roadcut No. 6 was chosen for convenience because 5 others already exist further to the south. An enormous roadcut worked in 2011-2012 across Route 105 from the Maxwell quarry. The boundaries between the municipalities of Cantley and La Pêche to the north seem to run through the roadcut, the nearest town is Wakefield in La Pêche. See links below.

Albite
Formula: Na(AlSi3O8)
Reference: Horváth collection
'Amphibole Supergroup'
Formula: AX2Z5((Si,Al,Ti)8O22)(OH,F,Cl,O)2
Reference: PM Belley Collection
Andradite
Formula: Ca3Fe3+2(SiO4)3

Arsenopyrite ?
Formula: FeAsS
Description: Only known from a single specimen with a minute crystal cluster, slightly oxidized. XRD or EDS confirmation would be necessary, as it is possible the abundant parallel growth obfuscates the true crystal form. Collectors are advised to look for this material in small vugs in massive galena.
