Introduction: The area investigated extends from just north of the southern boundary of the Hundred of Waterloo, northwards to the northern boundary of County Light. The westerly limit is on the western side of the Peters Hill ridge and the area extends eastwards to the Julia Range which runs northwards through Point Pass. An area to the north in the County of Burra has been mapped by Mr. S B Dickinson (Bulletin 20 of the Mines department of S.A.) whilst Mr. Hossfeld and Mr. Segnit have both covered areas to the south. Professor Howchin has noted the presence of glacial erratics in the area as well as the presence of the quartzite ridge south of Peters Hill.
