Located 11 kilometres south-west of the homestead.
Cupriferous vein in the Pearana Basalt. The vein is up to 0.6 metres thick, costeaned across 15 metres when inspected in the mid 1970's. Contains Cu and Pb carbonates. To the north by 1.5 kilometres is an isolated hill called the Camel Hump, and here is found small veinlets and pods of malachite.
