Image Caption:
Poissonnier Point

Poissonnier Point is shown on this near-vertical view taken in
November 1989. This stretch of the western Australian coast can
be used as a good landmark on approach to the northeastern por-
tion of the Hamersley/Pilbara site. The sediment load of the De-
Grey River (1), is building a delta out into the small estuary
and the Indian Ocean. Likewise, Poissonnier Point is the end of
an old delta. The remnants of the Ord Ranges (2) can be seen to
the west of the DeGrey River. Cape Keraudren (3) is visible at
the right center of the view. (S33-79-025)
