The quarry works Phanerozoic tillite (Dwyka series, Karroo System). Several small fissures carrying crystallised minerals are present, but the most productive area (leached of calcite) is a pyrite-rich breccia/fracture zone (coursing roughly N/S). The pyrite is unstable and yields ephemeral sulphates.
