Cobalt and silver mineralization occurs in calcite veins within the Nipissing Diabase as erythrite and native silver. The grade of 5 tonnes of material collected during past production was reported to be 22% Cobalt, and an assay of 20 oz/t Silver was reportedly obtained from a vein on the property. This information was from Mineral Deposit Inventory for Ontario (MDI31M04SE00035).
Friday Mines Limited operated the property in the 1920's sinking a shaft and drifting on a 10 inch wide calcite vein with cobalt mineralization. 5 tonnes of cobalt mineralization was produced with a grade of 22% Co.

More recently, in 1998 a portion of the property was staked and a small soil survey reported cobalt in soil up to 440 ppm as well as gold-in-soil anomalies. This information was from Mineral Deposit Inventory for Ontario (MDI31M04SE00035).
