Information

Len's Jupiter Well Tree and Plaque


In 1960, Beadell's team had pushed the GJR to a point 100 km west of the Pollock Hills, the vicinity of the actual tree and plaque photographed herein. This was where the grader suffered it's catastrophic gearbox failure and was still some 18 kilometers short of the current Jupiter Well site. Len did not return to the site until 1962.
