Exposure of Silurian sediments
McKinnon Road off Mathew Lane.
Poorly exposed fossiliferous sandstones, mudstones and limestone outcrop in a small excavation previously the site of the limekiln. These sediments are faulted by the Morass Creek Fault and have been intruded by The Brothers syenite- trachyte complex, with resultant metamorphism and associated pyrite mineralisation. Fossils are not common in these sediments although poorly preserved. Howellella, halysitids and solitary rugose corals have been recorded.
The quality of the site would be enhanced by limited access.
