Unzoned pegmatite.

Radioactive showings in granite pegmatite dikes have been explored by
bulldozed strippings, trenching, and packsack drill-holes.

At the main showing in the south half of lot 5, concession I, radioactive
granite pegmatite dikes have been exposed by six bulldozed strippings over a
length of 600 feet.
The Boundary showing is near the south boundary of the township in lot 6, concession I.
The Cliff showing is on lot 4, concession I.
