Located 10 kilometres south of the Sulphur Springs deposit, west of the Shaw River in remote mountainous country. Resource 1.7 Mt at 0.6% Cu, 9.8% Zn and 0.6% Pb.
The deposit dips 30 degrees north-west, with stringer Cu-pyrite in the lower part, and Cu-Zn upper part, and a Zn dominant massive sulphide zone.
Another source states it is high grade zinc mineralisation hosted by a marker chert with a shallow north-east plunging shoot, at least 1.5 kilometres down plunge from the gossan outcrop. The copper mineralisation is not well developed, in strongly altered volcanic rock beneath the marker chert.
17 valid minerals.
