Exposures of mylonitizied Marengo Granodiorite and minor gold and copper mineralisation.
Tea Pot Creek Track.
Poorly exposed outcrops of mylonitized Marengo Granodiorite occur on the eastern fall into the Tambo River along the Tea Pot Creek Track. Mylonitization has occurred in association with movements on the Indi Fault. Minor gold and copper mineralisation is associated with the fault zone while low-grade cassiterite mineralisation occurs in the Marengo Granodiorite massif.
Local. This site provides further evidence of the nature and intensity of movement associated with the Indi Fault.
Access to the site should be maintained.
