According to the South Australia Geodata Database, the "deposit was discovered in 1904, and during the next few years only a small amount of work was done. In 1941 it was worked in association with the adjoining Toms Quarry. The following year the British Phosphate Commissioners removed 50 tonnes of rock. Drill holes were completed, but the results showed the iron oxide content exceeded the desired maximum. There was no activity until 1958-1959 when a large production was recorded. The workings were a shaft 8.2m deep and a small open cut."
