An active open-pit phosphate mine. Phosphates have formed from the breakdown of fluorapatite in the presence of acidic Fe- and Al-bearing solutions.

The following are notes from the SARIG Mineral Deposit Information database, in regard to the names, Tom's quarry and Sobey mine.

Tom's quarry, "It lies adjacent to Sobey Mine, which is basically part of the same deposit, with a separate record created in MINDEP based only on the old Mine Summary card database."
Note: The names Tom's quarry, Tom's Phosphate quarry, Clutterbuck Bros, and PM 315 relate to this deposit.

Sobey mine, "the deposit was discovered in 1904, and during the next few years, only a small amount of work was done. In 1941 it was worked in association with the adjoining Tom's Quarry."
Note: The names Sobey, BHP, and ML 4993 relate to this deposit.

PM 315 and ML 4993 are the current tenements for these two locations, the operations name on each is listed as "Tom's phosphate mine". Both are operated by the same individual, although the tenements have separate owners.

In recent (6th December 2012) communications between Mark Willoughby and Vince Peisley, Vince stated:
"Tom's quarry and Old Tom's quarry are the only two names this deposit have been known by, regardless of what the SARIG mineral deposit information says. The Sobey mine consisted of a shaft some two hundred meters to the east and is now filled in. This information was given to me by a miner who worked there as a teenager in 1941. Clutterbuck Bros and BHP were leaseholders, not quarry names."
Vince is considered locally to be one of the foremost experts regarding rock phosphate deposits in South Australia, so this information is currently being investigated further.
