Marston (1979) notes a Barramine deposit, 2.5 kilometres south of the homestead. This is a small cupriferous quartz vein filling a fault between the Pearana Basalt to the east, and Carrawine Dolomite to the west. The vein is 0.3 to 0.4 metres wide, opened 3 metre deep by a shaft, producing historically 2 to 3 tonnes of ore, containing malachite, chalcocite, cuprite, grading at 5.77% Cu and a trace of silver.
4 valid minerals.
