This deposit is located 3km SSE of Greta South.
"The observed workings extend for a distance of less than 1 km and consist of rough trenches, shafts and short cuts in grey to black slate. These deposits occur on the side of a ridge a short distance west of north from a knoll known as 'the Sugarloaf'. Exactly how many turquoise deposits occurred here are not known, but at least five workings can be located over a distance of little more than 500 metres. The two most northerly of these workings are the most extensive, with one still showing the remains of an old ore truck and rail system. Turquoise may still be found on some of the dumps."
