Located 25kms north-west of Mulgul Homestead.

A number of prospects occur within the central bend of the Quartzite Well Fault. They occur as anomalous lead-zinc mineralization within tectonic breccias in a steep dipping fault zone. The mineralization occurs within siliceous and carbonaceous shales.

Ferguson states the Quartz Well Fault is a reverse east trending fault, containing galena, sphalerite and pyrite, in sandstone, dolomite, shale, phyllite of the Lower Gap Well Formation, at its contact with the Jillawarra Formation.

The surface shows a 1.4 kilometre long ferruginous gossan, grading at 1.86% lead and 260 g/t Ag. At depth is galena and sphalerite in silica and pyrite veins, associated with milky white silica in thin veins up to 15 cms in diameter often forming crustiform spherical structures, containing blotches of chalcopyrite. Discovered by Amoco in 1974, and explored by them until 1978.
