The East prospect is approximately 2kms south-east of the Main prospect and lies about 400 metres above the Main prospect.
It is on the dome flank, as a linear one kilometre long zone. Gossan contains secondary lead in the form of bindheimite, carminite, and philipsbornite, with scorodite. Below this by 3 metres is arsenopyrite, pyrite, pyrrhotite, boulangerite, galena, chalcopyrite, and ullmannite. Pyrite dominates at depth, with mineralisation in irregular cross cutting quartz veins, enriched with silver, arsenic, gold, copper, molybdenium, and antimony.
11 valid minerals.
