It was found in 1904 by a farmer about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) from the village of Chambord, Quebec. The exact location and the name of the farmer are unknown. When the meteorite was found, it was brought to the attention of the superintendent of Mines for the Province of Quebec who then loaned it to the Geological Survey of Canada for analysis.
The recovered fragment is an irregularly shaped block about 19 centimetres (7.5 in) x 9 centimetres (3.5 in) x 15 centimetres (5.9 in). The entire mass is in the Canadian Meteorite Collection, Geological Survey of Canada, Ottawa.
