North of Badgingarra, near the Brand Highway, however a visit is likely to dis-appoint. The surface expression is a low circular 12 kilometre diameter depression.
It was discovered during oil exploration by Ampol, who suggested an impact crater.
It is hosted in Mesozoic rocks, and the depression extends for 2 kilometres below the surface, including a central uplift region, 3 to 4 kilometres in diameter. There are five concentric rings surrounding a single magnetic peak, in the centre of the structure.
No minerals currently recorded for this locality.
This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.
