This is a well known, and documented, prospect for iron where a small audit was dug and the ore/tailings appear to never have been removed from the site.  It is on private land and has been closed to mineral collectors for almost two decades at the time of this writing (2017).  It produced beta form quartz often in combination with lustrous blades of hematite.  The quartz/hematite combinations from this site are can often be almost identical to the specimens from Cornwall, England.  Only experts well aquatinted with both these locations would have any hope of accurately telling the difference between pieces from the two locales.  Specimens from  Chub lake are seldom seen for sale and are normally only encountered through the resale of older collections.
