Little is known of this locality. It is indicated as being carbonatite on the 1:2,000,000 scale mineral map of Zaire, and shown on the Carte Geologique du Haut Zaire et du Nord Kivu au 1/500,000 (Thibaut, 1982) as an alkaline complex with carbonatite. The latter map also depicts the occurrence as comprising three centres aligned north-east - southwest extending over 9 km.
