granite has a felsic composition and is more common in recent geologic time in contrast to earth's ultramafic ancient igneous history. felsic rocks are less dense than mafic and ultramafic rocks, and thus they tend to escape subduction, whereas basaltic or gabbroic rocks tend to sink into the mantle beneath the granitic rocks of the continental cratons.
mining began in world war i and saw a number of mines worked, or reworked, for barytes until operations ended in 1966 after producing some 150,000 tons of dressed barytes. the relatively low price received for the mineral made the mines susceptible to market fluctuations and mines changed hands regularly.
