Hematite Hill, Arkaroola.

Hematite is the mineral form of iron.

The rock in this case is black and, as can be imagined, is quite heavy.

It’s the main ore of iron which is mined when in large quantities. That’s not the case here.

Mulga trees (acacia anuera) are in the foreground.

Mulga is an interesting arid land tree and a bloke I met years ago, Horst Weber has got a very good description of how it survives and its many uses by aborigines. Click here to read more.
