Concentrates from an albite pegmatite contained a heavy yellow mineral identified by Government Mineralogist, E.S. Simpson in 1929 as xenotime. Up to 92% of the concentrate was xenotime with the remainder mainly zircon. It was mined only in 1929, on the west slope of Mt Lookout.
Mt Lookout is an unimpressive hill just south of the Neendojer Nature Reserve. The hill can be seen directly ahead (north) at the Grays Road/Sloss Road intersection, on private farmland. What remains of the mine is unconfirmed.
