Weloganite is an incredibly rare mineral species found in the alkalic sill of limestone at the Francon Quarry located in the central part of the City of Montreal. The site closed in 1981 and will never operate again. The species was named after Canadian geologist, John Dresser in 1968. Dresser made large contributions to the knowledge of the Monteregian Hills in which Dresserite finds its type locality at the Francon Quarry.
