Latitude & Longitude (WGS84): 21° 21' 48'' South , 133° 57' 55'' East
Latitude & Longitude (decimal): -21.3634671358, 133.965511186


The Horizontal pegmatite is in the vicinity of the Millar's Workings location, with Anster, Easy and Tommy's Show pegmatites also in the vicinity. Mindat map approximate.

It is a one metre thick, flat dipping coarse grained pegmatite, displaced slightly by a north striking fault. While relatively significant tantalum has been found in the pegmatite, none of this has shed into alluvial material surrounding the pegmatite.

See main Barrow Creek Pegmatite Field sub-heading for more geology information.
