Granite pegmatite dike. Concession B, Lot 5

"The deposit was worked for feldspar from 1926 to 1929 by Wanup Feldspar Mines Limited which shipped about 2268 t of feldspar. It was the largest feldspar operation in the district. The open-pit measures 46 m by 15 m and 9 m deep."

Yellow liquid oil and nodules of hardened oil were reported to occur in fracture zones in the pegmatite.
