A giant alkaline pegmatite. This quarry is the source of the rocks found at the CN Rock Dump in central Bancroft.

The Golding-Keene Quarry was worked for nepheline from 1927 to 1939 by New England Nepheline Company, the quarry which is 25 meters long, 18 wide, with a 12 meter face, was cut into east side of a hill of the west bank of the York River.

Collecting at the Golding-Keene Quarry is now prohibited as it is part of the Egan Chutes Ontario Park. Collecting is still permitted at the CN Dump in central Bancroft, where material from this quarry has been deposited.

The primary reference given for the locality (Sabina 1986) spells the name Golding-Keen, so the primary name has been changed, but some references use the spelling Goulding-Keene so this has been preserved in parenthesis.
