Formerly: Black Lake Mine, now British Canadian mine (B.C. 1 & B.C. 2 mines), Black Lake, Mégantic Co., Québec, Canada

One of the largest, now inactive, open pit chrysotile asbestos mine in the area, that through pit expansion consolidated a number of adjacent mines. It will take some research to sort out the names (multiple names) of the absorbed mines.

Dominant rock is rodingite, but calcalkaline biotite granite, herzbergite, and peridolitite are also present in the pit.

Andradite
Formula: Ca3Fe3+2(SiO4)3
Description: The is possibly the locality for andradite with rare crystallography from "West Thetford Mines" described by Parsons, A. L., 1935, Trisoctahedral Garnet from West Thetford Mines, P. Q., Contributions to Canadian Mineralogy (University of Toronto Studies Geological Series, 38), p. 33-36. Nonetheless, known andradite specimens from the Black Lake Mine have the same color and crystallography described by Parsons. Parsons (1935) reported a chemical composition of 78.74% end-member andradite for "West Thetford Mines" andradite.
