Locality type:


Cluster of alkaline to peralkaline granitic pegmatites occurring in the Neoproterozoic sedimentary rocks. Located 17km Northwest of Arkaroola Village and 4km East of Umberatana Station, these are the western extention of a series of pegmatite plugs that follow a west-north-west trend along the southern boundary of Arkaroola.
