Discovered in 1911 by prospectors Metzke and party. The location is isolated, and would suit those who want to get off the beaten track, and are self sufficient.

The location is several hundred metres of shafts and associated mullock trending north north-west to south south-east, hidden in thick mulga scrub.

The deepest shaft is 90 feet. Several crushings were taken out shortly after 1911, to the Mount Ida state battery, achieving 500 tonnes averaging 35 dwt to the tonne.

It is a big kidney quartz formation. In the early stages, the workings were described as a jeweller's shop, but values pinched out and the leases were abandoned. At the northern end the reef becomes broken into stringers and leaders.

Later the No3 State Prospecting Party, was so impressed they pegged the leases, but could find no-one interested to invest back in Perth. There were probably lone prospectors operating later, but no information was found.

From the Menzies-Sandstone Road, a track heads west from Yendang Rock. This passes through a gap in a north-south striking range of hills. Beyond this the track ends at a T junction. Turn right (north), and this heads in a straight line until a cross-road is met. The workings are about 1 kilometre north-west. The distance is about 30 kilometres as the crow flies from Yendang Rock. Getting lost in the vicinity of Metzke's Find is a distinct possibility.
