Area position

Updated 16th October 2005

A covered shaft above site 1219. Some boulders were removed for exploration; care should be taken around the shaft top as most of the 5-6m long, 2m wide shaft appears to be capped and covered with vegetation.
Ten metres down the shaft divides into three and reunites another 10m down. The shaft then drops 25m to a rocky floor, 3 x 6m with lots of dog bones. One tight rift at the base is 3m deep, another is 6" wide and continuing. The double barrels from a shot gun were removed from the bottom.
