The Point Wakefield Beds are developed as a fine, angular, well sorted sandstone and micaceous claystone. The Hooker Creek Formation is composed of a fine to medium crystalline dolomite and siltstone. Aquifers between 12m and 26m and between 48m and 53m were encountered in the Point Wakefield Beds and Hooker Creek Formation.
