A group of tourmaline prospects located in the NE4NE4 Sec. 28 T9S R4E SBM, about 7.25 miles northeast of Warner Springs, slightly north of Lost Valley. The area is now located within the Schoepe Scout Reservation.

Several pegmatite dikes outcrop along the crest and southeastern slope of a small hill. These dikes are enclosed in granitic rocks, and contain abundant black tourmaline.
