Geology unknown but is supposed to contain Cobalt and Graphite
A small EM conductor was located on the ground, and subsequent trenching has exposed a metapelitic layer within the mainly granite gneisses. The metapelite contains feldspar, garnet, mica, quartz, sillimanite and medium- to coarse- grained graphite flakes which constitute O to 5 weight % of the host rock's mineralogy. A characteristic rusty weathering occurs both on the surface and throughout the rock. The thickness of the flat-lying body has been shown to be over 2m however, more work is required to determine the size of the deposit.
