In pegmatite dyke cutting granite gneiss, crystalline limestone and amphibolite.

The deposit was worked between 1919 and 1926 by P.J. Dwyer, Mount Eagle Feldspar Company and by the Consolidated Feldspar Company. Total production - 455t. It was developed by a side-hill cut (18 m by 6m with a 12-m face) from which an adit was driven 30 m into the hill.
