Located in the southern part of the Wodgina Belt, 8.6 kilometres from the Wodgina mine.

Thin veinlets and sparse disseminations of goethite-malachite-chrysocolla, sporadically distributed in a 200 metre long, 10 metre wide, south south-west trending sequence of mixed quartz-feldspar, muscovite-chlorite schist, and amphibolite. To the west is diopsidic amphibolite rocks, and to the east semi-pelitic and psammitic schist.

The location when inspected in the mid 1970's, contained four shallow pits, which had produced in 1963, 3.71 tonnes of cupreous ore grading at 6.25% Cu.
