The most prominent of a land formation rising above arid plains, known since white settlement as 'The Pinnacles'. It is the weathered outcrop of a folded layer of ancient quartzite. An anomaly conspicuous for miles, in a uniform land texture and pattern, interrupted only by tracks made by mine vehicles, in pursuit of the Lead, Zinc, Silver and Gold beneath!
