"Kemp Uranium Mines, Limited, was incorporated in 1955 and owns what was formerly known as the Kemp property comprising nine claims, lots 2-5, concession XIV, and the south half of lot 1, concession XIV, Cardiff township, Haliburton county.
In 1954 radioactive showings in marble or skarn were exposed by a bulldozed stripping and a number of trenches. In 1954-55 further exploration consisted of deepening some of the trenches, additional trenching, and seven diamond-drill holes totaling 2,882 feet." (Radioactive Mineral Occurrences in the Bancroft Area by J. Satterly, Sixty-Fifth Annual Report of the Ontario Department of Mines, Volume LXV, Part 6, 1956, published 1957.)

"Kemp Uranium Mines, Limited, was the name of the company that owned and explored the property, and the property name was Kemp. Based on previous discussions on this forum the property should probably not be called a mine since no shaft or adit was developed, only bulldozed strippings and trenches. The property could be more properly called a prospect." (John Duck)

In pyroxene skarn.

(Not to be confused with the "Kemp showing" at Centre Lake Uranium MInes.)
