[www.geologyontario.mndmf.gov.on.ca] gives a report of some claim work around the Smart mine in 1993. Has a little mineralogy and a few maps.
As of Sept. 2013, there was a fee ($10/person) for collecting at this locality. For information on the Miller Property see online link below.

The following information on the Smart mine, in lot 31, concession X,
Sebastopol township, is taken from the reports by Willimott and Spence. It
was opened prior to 1880 and yielded a considerable quantity of phosphate.
Very fine crystals of zircon, titanite, and apatite have been found in a band of limestone. The zircons are of a brilliant hyacinth-red colour, and the titanite crystals are also very brilliant, being often translucent. Amazonite is reported to occur on this lot. (ARV53)
