Four adits and two shafts on a 200m long, 15m wide cassiterite-bearing zoned pegmatite dyke. Tin mineralisation is thought to have been associated with the K-spar rich zone of the dyke, rather than the quartz rich zone.

Heterosite
Formula: (Fe3+,Mn3+)PO4
Description: Occurs as alteration product of a primary phosphate, probably triphylite, in massive quartz. Only small amounts are present, as the specimens so far found are in an advanced state of weathering. XRD of the oxides that make up the bulk of the weathered material showed that they are basically amorphous.

'Lepidolite'
Colour: Lavender - purple of various intensity
Description: Purple mica with ball-peen habit occurs both on the dumps and in outcrop. Grain size varies from a few mm to ~1.5cm. Maximum birefringence at 30 microns in thin section is second order, fitting with lepidolite and unlike the third order colours of muscovite at the same thickness. Pale green muscovite coexists with the lepidolite in some specimens. XRD analysis to distinguish from muscovite was inconclusive, however the association of habit, colour, and occurrence in a fractionated pegmatite, along with petrographic information indicates that the species is lepidolite.
