On the Mingary 1:100 000 map area small chips of clear, blue sapphire have been found in the surface lag at two separate sites during recent mapping by the author. One locality is west of Rocky Dam adjacent to the Tepco fence (Zone 54, 485800mE, 641950mN) and the other is south of Figgans Dam adjacent to the Kyanite Ridge kyanite deposit (Zone 54, 489800mE, 6425300mN). This occurrence is only 2 km north of Bonython Hill, where Noble et al. (1983) report indigo-blue blebs of corundum in kyanite.
