Latitude & Longitude (decimal): 47.3790575857, -79.1765640525


SW of the southern end of Lac des Quinze, ENE of Ville-Marie, E of Lake Timiskaming. Source of the Lac Lussac dispersal train. Superior Diamonds Inc. intersected a kimberlite body in a drill hole in 2006.

The rock appears to consist of serpentinized olivine, phlogopite mica, pyrope garnet etc. The Morin Kimberlite reportedly contains diamonds (James St John, 2014), but the mining company that owns the pipe has determined that it is not economically diamondiferous.

Position approximate.
