A mica quarry in granite pegmatite. The George Smith Quarry and Chandlers Mill Quarry were nearly adjacent operations across a small country road from each other. Species list also contains minerals from the host rocks.

Note: Because of the extreme confusion experienced concerning the proper names of these quarries, please do not add species to locality lists unless there is irrefutable evidence for which locality produced the specimen. In many cases, the scientific literature, itself, is wrong.

Note: Incorrectly listed as "G. E. Smith" Quarry in some references. Both the first (1956) and second (1960) editions of Philip Morrill's New Hampshire Mines and Mineral Locations incorrectly give the names as the "G. E. Smith" and "Chandler Mills". The Morrill references place both the George Frank Smith Quarry and the Chandlers Mill Quarry on the wrong sides of the road. Because of the widespread distribution of these field guides, mineral location labels can not be considered undeniably indicating one or the other of these locations. The George Frank Smith Quarry has produced some interesting mineral species, particularly phosphates, but the Chandlers Mill Quarry has by far produced the greater variety of species.

See discussion of the locality history in the section for Chandlers Mill Quarry.
