An area on the hill has been blasted to prospect for nepheline and sodalite. The hill is composed of nepheline-rich gneisses with patches of pegmatite.

The deposit was discovered in 1896 by A.E. Barlow and F.D. Adams while conducting a geological survey of the area. It is exposed by a pit on the steep western slope of Cancrinite Hill.
