The Dafoe property is found on the east side of Leonard Stream near the famous Powers farm locality.  Although the tourmalines from this locality have yet to be analyzed, they are likely similar in composition to those found at the Powers farm.  That would mean they are dravites with fluor-uvite cores.  So, the term tourmaline best applies to the primary species found at this new location and will be used for specimens from this location (until the proper analysis is completed).  Unlike the specimens from Powers, the primary crystallized accessory minerals at this location are fluorapatite and calcite.
