This was mainly a vesuvianite locality known since the mid to late 1800s, however, the area is now built up and is in the city of Gatineau. The GPS coordinates are given for the former Templeton. Old mineral labels may describe the locality as Templeton Township, Ottawa Co., or Templeton Township, Papineau Co.

Research has demonstrated that the "vesuvianite" is actually wiluite.
