Located 50 kilometres south south-east of Laverton.

The main host rock is metakomatiite. The host rock has been metamorphosed and altered to a mineral assemblage of fuchsite-magnesite-quartz. Unaltered komatiite is talc-chlorite. Gold mineralisation is found in quartz vein stockwork. Mineralisation is found in east-west trending shoots, developed during a localised D2 event.
