A roadcut located on highway 648 about 1.08 km from Old Mumford Road going west. The roadcut is located on the north side of the highway, on the south side of the highway there is a small stream with a waterfall west of the roadcut where some material from the roadcut can be found.

This roadcut was where Harry Ablett (owner Dwyer Mine rock shop) and later his son collected zircon crystals for sale in their shop. Whenever there was any road work done on the outcrop you could count on seeing Harry or his son gathering the bounty for his shop. Also of note were fluorapatite, titanite, and molybdenite specimens. Harry once told me that the site was once a small mine years before that was operated by a local family on a part-time basis. Harry said the family was very secretive and no one knew what it was they were seeking or possibly finding. According to Harry the road was built over/through the workings. (John Duck)
