The area around Bismuth Dam itself (within 1km radius) has several bodies of Silexite on the edge of the Granite/Sediment contact. These Silexite outcrops are rich in Quartz veins, along which pockets can occur at regular intervals. I have explored this area many times and to date have collected the following minerals:
Quartz, var. Citrine (As clusters and single crystals up to 18cm in size)
Quartz, var. Smoky (As clusters and single crystals up to 18cm in size)
Topaz (as Euhedral terminated crystals up to 1cm in size)
Beryl (Opaque but well formed greenish crystals up to 3cm)
Monazite (As small isolated crystals 2mm in size on Chlorite and Smoky Quartz clusters.)
