In quartz-dolomite-feldspar veins cutting granite. Discovered sometime between 1870 and 1900. As of 2008, all that remains is a few low piles of rock, a capped shaft, and one cave-in (partly filled in shaft?).

Before 1932 - Early development consisted of a shaft about 70 feet deep. Several hundred tons of ore were removed, mill recovery was reported to be 0.24 to 0.44 oz/ton Au. Operators not known.
1932 - Surface sampling and trenching outlined a mineralized zone in a 1500 foot vein system on the property. Operators not known.
1937 - Ackerman Gold Mines Ltd. was incorporated in Sept. A number of mine buildings were erected and mine equipment installed. A 2 compartment shaft was opened along a 45 degree W incline to a depth of 170 feet. At 170 feet, 12' of crosscutting and 40' of drifting were completed.
1938 - the shaft was deepened to 270' and 600' of drifting was completed at the 170' level.
1942 - Consolidated Mining and Smelting drilled 6 diamond drill holes on the property.
1950-1951 - The property was evaluated for Ackerman Gold Mines Ltd. An additional 3200' of drilling was completed; however, the results were not submitted for assessment.
1981, 1983 and 1984 - R.L.V. Ekstrom carried out various electromagnetic and geological surveys. One diamond drill hole of 122' was drilled.
1985 - Belmar Resources carried out geological, magnetic, VLF-EM, and self potential surveys on this property. 6 DDH were drilled for a total of 1,237'. Two of the holes were drilled on the number 1 shaft while the other 4 were in the vicinity of shaft #2.
1988 - Champion Gold Resources carried out geological and I.P. surveys and drilled 4 DD holes totalling 1,588' in 1989.

Mineral List


9 valid minerals.

Detailed Mineral List:

Arsenopyrite
Formula: FeAsS
Description: Specimens exhibit a variety of habits including bowtie twins (rare, 5mm the largest we have found). Specimens are usually etched out of the matrix with acid but the odd good matrix piece can be found. Largest single crystals found by us in 1994 are 25mm x10mm. Gold is occasionally found on the arsenopyrite crystals. This locality is now posted and the Ontario Provincial Police do check out parked vehicles! It is also rife with poison ivy.
