"Reneville is a small village about 3km south of the Reneville mine, The mine consists of three old prospects which probably produced less than 100,000 tonnes of ore. The largest is the Indus Mine, a couple of hundred meters to the north is the much smaller Amelie working and then to the south is an adit called Bel. From what I can see only the Indus workings produced any significant specimens. Blocks of limestone veined with cuprite malachite, dioptase and rare plancheite were found in trenches dug by NGEX Resources but no in-situ material was found."
