500 metres south of the Dalgaranga Mine. Poorly exposed and largely un-excavated. The reference notes attractive specimens are possible from the pegmatite should it ever be mined for this purpose.
The pegmatite is exposed for 200 metres, up to 20 metres wide, strikes north-east, and dips steeply north-west. The pegmatite contains a core of blocky blue-grey quartz, surrounded by a zone of quartz, topaz, fluorite, cleavelandite, zinnwaldite, lepidolite, verdelite and cassiterite.
7 valid minerals.
