The major mineralized zones have been found within a northwest-trending extension of the main gabbro mass or within the gabbro body near the extension. The extension consists of serpentinized peridotite and serpentinite with local amphibolitic areas. It is approximately 240 m long by 90 m wide and plunges 23° SE.

Exploration work was done prior to 1920 (trenches and two shafts). Between 1933 and 1936, Cuniptau Mines, Limited sank a 75m shaft and installed a pilot smelter. Production amounted to 44,975.6 kg of copper, 29,641.6 kg of nickel, and small amounts of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. The deposit was later investigated by Ontario Nickel Corporation, Limited (1937-1948) and by Trebor Mines Limited (1948-1949). Kanichee Mining Incorporated worked the property from an open pit from 1973 to 1976.
