Formerly: Yates Mine(Yates Uranium Mine, Yates Prospect), Otter Lake, Huddersfield Township, Pontiac Co., Québec, Canada

The deposit was originally worked for phlogopite and fluorite in 1906-1907 by the Calumet Mica Co. and later by Mr.A.G.Martin of Ottawa. The workings consisted of a few pits, the deepest measuring 20 feet. In 1943-44, Twin Valley Prospecting Syndicate mined 18 tons of fluorite from the deposit. In 1950 Mr.J.M.Yates discovered the presence of a radioactive mineral, uranothorite, and Yates Uranium Mines Inc. was formed to develop the property. Development consisted of a 300 ft adit, 2 open cuts, and diamond drilling.

The coordinates given are for what is known as the "Matte Zone".
Areas are the Belanger, Belisle, Camp, Cliff, Lake and Matte.

According to this thread http://www.mindat.org/forum.php?read,6,240574,372089#msg-372089 the Yates Mine was closed and bulldozed a couple of years ago.
