Shoemaker (formerly known as Teague Ring) is an impact structure (or astrobleme), the deeply eroded remnant of a former impact crater, situated in arid central Western Australia, about 100 klm North-Northeast of Wiluna.It is 30 klm in diameter and the age is estimated to be 1630 million years (Paleoproterozoic). The crater contains seasonal lakes that produce salt deposits as they evaporate. The crater is exposed to the surface. Crater is regarded as the oldest known Australian impact structure to date. A dark, crescent-shaped inner ring surrounds the core, which consists of uplifted granitic rocks. The outer ring is composed of Precambrian sedimentary rocks.
