In the past, Logan Resources and its predecessor explored the property for gold but the current interest on the property revolves around the former Brynnor iron (magnetite) deposit developed by Noranda Mines in the 1960's.
Noranda mined 4,480,940 tonnes at 56% iron from the open pit part of the deposit and explored the underground part of the deposit from 3 underground levels accessed by an 867ft 3-compartment shaft. The mine closed in 1968 at the expiration of the concentrate sales contract with Japanese steel makers after a protracted labour strike. The underground extension of the deposit was never developed.
