A former uranium mine on a deposit discovered in late 1953 by diamond drilling. There was little surface expression of the ore body. The property is underlain by highly altered and strongly deformed Precambrian igneous and sedimentary rocks, predominantly paragneiss with minor amphibolite, gabbro, and locally recrystallized limestone.
The ore occurs in a granite pegmatite dyke system in mafic gneiss. The main ore mineral was uraninite which seldom formed crystals larger than 5 mm. Underground development was started in 1954 by Faraday Uranium Mines Ltd. Production started 1957 and ended in 1964 when contracts to sell uranium expired. Mining operations were resumed in 1975 by Madawaska Mines Ltd. The 444 m (1,440 feet deep) shaft was deepened to 473m (1,537 feet). Production began in 1976 and lasted until 1982. Other workings underground include a 50 m shaft and three adits. 2,544,716 tons of ore were produced, averaging 0.1074% U3O8.


The ilmenite/magnetite occurrence has been moved to a separate locality because, although specimens are often labeled as being from the mine, the occurrence is actually elsewhere on the property.
