Located about 30 km north of the Mount Elliott mine.
There were two principal copper mines in the area - the Hampden-Cloncurry Mine and the Hampden Consols Mine.

There are gold, copper and silver deposits throughout the area and
I consider that the Amethyst locality is locally distinguishable and should be shown separate to a generic Cu-Au deposit. The Amethyst collecting area is a generally known "hobby" collecting area and would appear to be a separate deposit.
