A major Li pegmatite which was first pegged in 1955. Minor petalite production was reported for 1961 and 1962. The pegmatite bodies intruded along serpentine and sedimentary rocks over a strike length of several kilometers. The width varies between 10 and 25 meters. The bigger pegmatites the north of the Machakwe River are rich in spodumene and lepidolite, the smaller pegmatites south of the river are rich in petalite. The pegmatite bodies strike N20° and dip with 70° to 90° to the west. Parts of the pegmatite are quite rich in tantalite-(Mn). The economic potential for lithium, tantalum and others is currently (2014) being evaluated.
