”There was a production of barite (heavy spar) in 1921 by H.C. Bellew, 6 Saint Sacrament St., Montreal, Que. of approximately 200 tons, from a deposit which is located on lot 20, concession X, township of North Burgess, Lanark county.   No shipments, however, were reported during 1921 or 1922.", Ontario Department of Mines annual report,1922.
The baryte was used in the production of paper.
The pits are now (2018) on the private property of Mr. David Bangs. Permission to enter the property must be obtained from the owner. There are electrified fences and cattle on the property.
