Mine (Abandoned) - last checked 2018
Köppen climate type:


A former underground mine.

Located in Byjerkerno Parish approxiimately l.5 kms south-southwest of the "Byjerkerno" homestead, south of Caloola Creek.

A cassiterite, amblygonite and beryl bearing pegmatite, worked from 1887 through to probably the 80's-90's. Tin mineralisation historically was low grade and patchy. Some beryl and amblygonite has been won, however beryllium and lithium grades were quite low. Notably, the beryl from this mine is a caesium-bearing variety, vorobyevite.
