Generally known as the Clifton Prospect, however Ransom also labels it as Pioneer A. Separate maps by Petrocarb Exploration NL from the early 1970's shows Pioneer A as a general area north of the Jervois mining centre covering several individually named prospects. Otter Exploration in the early 1980's, called the area north-east of the Reward Mine, the UH3 Area, also probably containing several individual prospects, and further north as the Jervois North area, although highlighting a site at the northern end of the airstrip.

Scheelite prospect in epidote-quartzite. Altered tuffaceous sandstone containing chrysocolla is also mentioned. Several old costeans mark the site, as reported in 1982, although their state now is unclear. Also at the site is skarn with schorl, and micro-granite containing magnetite with minor scheelite and copper value. Pegmatites border the granite margins containing tourmaline, albite, beryl.

Mineralisation for the deposit is patchy and overall a low grade. To the north of the prospect is a further area of hornblende granitic skarn covered in sand.
