Latitude & Longitude (WGS84): 42° 24' 10'' South , 146° 0' 12'' East

Alluvial gold deposits in shallow Cainozoic sediments. The goldfield is now in a National park and prospecting and mining are banned. The source of the gold is uncertain, but the presence of cinnabar in the sediments suggests an epithermal hard rock source is close by.
