In quartz veins cutting greenstone and in quartz breccia.

A 15 m (50 ft) shaft was sunk around 1909 and approximately 181 tons of rock were removed. No ore shipments were made at the time. During WWI, J.W. Barton of Toronto shipped 550.8 kg of hand-cobbed ore to the Mines Branch in Ottawa for recovery of 42.6 kg of molybdenite. Later a fire destroyed the camp and boiler house; operations were not renewed.
