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.
