Hosted by pebbly greywacke, conglomerate, arenite, shale, slate, all dipping steeply south. Located on a buff coloured ridge immediately north of a larger ridge. Described in the mid 1970's as a small area of malachite staining and fracture coatings, scattered on an outcrop 175 metres by 50 metres. No quartz veining. The source states there is an adit into the southern side of the ridge, and shallow potholes.

The study of Bali Lo (Nickel et. al.) in 2005 (published 2007) shows a basic map with Stockyard Creek about 5 kilometres south of the Bali Lo prospect, however Marston (1979) gives co-ordinates which place the prospect about 20 kilometres north-west of the Bali Lo prospect. The latter has been used on Mindat until more reliable information comes to hand. Prospect remote, and appears could be better studied.
