The metal post is located in the National Capital Commission (NCC) Mer Bleu wilderness in Gloucester township, on the southern edge of the Dolman Ridge, directly along a fenced property line (separating concession 4 from concession 5). Especially because the benchmark is described above as a tablet or cap, I was suprised to find only a secure and sturdy metal post at the precise co-ordinates. It is possible that after fifty years; grass, moss and/or soil has swallowed the disk.
