(Map- geographic location of Mount Throssell, rather than the prospect).
Approximately 250 kilometres east north-east of Wiluna.
Exploration has discovered five small pipe, or sill-like intrusions of ultramafic lamprophyre. A microdiamond was discovered at the BJ 1 sill, and a full set of (un-named) mineral indicators at BJ 5. Nothing more was found. It has been included as a reference pending any further discoveries.
1 valid mineral.
