The Horizontal pegmatite is in the vicinity of the Millar's Workings location, with Anster, Easy and Tommy's Show pegmatites also in the vicinity. Mindat map approximate.
It is a one metre thick, flat dipping coarse grained pegmatite, displaced slightly by a north striking fault. While relatively significant tantalum has been found in the pegmatite, none of this has shed into alluvial material surrounding the pegmatite.
