Maximum thickness of 22 cm; consists of thin, bubble-wall shards. Orthopyroxene, plagioclase, magnetite, and ilmenite are relatively abundant in the small crystal component, which also contains minor amounts of clinopyroxene, apatite, and zircon. From Preece et al. (2011): 22 cm thick; bubble-wall shards, trace amounts of brown glass; in grey clay and silt overlying gravel; 1.2 m above gravel; field name CR67-44.

From Preece et al. (2000): strip cut prepared for placer mining. Section no longer exists. Measuring from creek level, there is 9.4 m of slumped material; 0.35 m of rust-stained sand and gravel are overlain by 1.2 m of dark grey clay and silt; silt is overlain by whitish tephra bed containing twigs; an additional 2.7 m of greyish clay and silt overlies the tephra bed. The section is capped by 0.2-0.3 m of moss and forest litter. Coordinates from Preece et al. (2011).
