This reef is 7.4 kilometres north of Pike Creek near the junction of Dinner and Aberie Creeks. The main reef was first prospected in 1872 and in 1873 a shaft was sunk to 13.1 metres at which depth it was reported the quartz was richer in gold and was 1.0 metre in width. Drives were constructed both sides of the shaft along the reef at the lowest level. The main reef is about 300 metres long striking at 120° and varies in width between 0.51 m. and 1.0 m. A second reef lies sub-parallel and near to the main reef. Production, if any, in the 1870's is unrecorded. In 1886, a trial crushing of 12.2 tonnes of ore from the main reef yielded 42 gm, Au/tonne and in 1898-99, 15.2 tonnes from the second reef yielded 114 gm. Au/tonne. No work was done in the area after 1900.
