Formerly: Kilmar Mine, Kilmar, Grenville township, Argenteuil Co., Québec, Canada

Mining started during World War I.The deposit was originally mined as an open pit. Underground mining began by means of adits from the open pit and then continued via a shaft sunk in 1937, reaching a depth of 700 feet in 1942.
