A major New Jersey iron mine in magnetite ore located in the small borough of Mine Hill, near Dover. Started before 1868 and worked until 1873 but reopened for a few months in 1880, then the summer of 1881, 1899 and finally in 1905. Ore is hosted in a perthite-oligoclase granite. Much drilling and analyses were performed in conjunction with the ROI # 6885 research.

The Scrub Oaks mine was the largest of the many iron mines that were once scattered across the Reading Prong highlands of northern New Jersey and adjacent areas. Some references give the date of last production as 1958 while many others say that final closure was in 1966.

The orebodies at Scrub Oaks were a bit different than those typical of the region. Rather than more or less massive magnetite, lens shaped in cross section but lath shaped in length the Scrub Oaks ores were more irregular and disseminated. The ores contained a significant amount of hematite, unlike nearly all the other ore deposits of the region.

The most notable feature of the Scrub Oaks ores was the presence of uranium and rare earth minerals. It is the type locality of Doverite, now Synchisite-Y. Smith, et al (1960) note that the rare earth element mineral assemblages occur with pegmatite lithologies. The basic ores of the Scrub Oaks deposit are now thought to have been deposited in a back arc basin environment (Matt, et al, 2017 and Volkert and Peck, 2017) and metamorphosed to granulite facies during the Ottawan orogeny around 1040 Ma. The rare earth element mineral assemblage was likely superimposed on the existing ores during the period 1000 – 950 Ma when the region was intruded by pegmatites and experienced widespread hydrothermal activity (Volkert, et al, 2005)
