Geological Visit: Hexagonal Rock Columns at High Island East Dam

Join us for a site visit to the Hexagonal Rock Columns at High Island East Dam on Saturday the 12th January 2019.

High Island is home to spectacular hexagonal column rock formations. These formations can be easily seen at the High Island Reservoir East Dam viewing site. The East Dam was completed in the 1970’s, and is surrounded by beautiful scenery and coastal features.

During the geological processes, these formations were formed by volcanic activity, where magma was pushed along a weak line of the columns and cooled to form an intrusive dyke. These formations are light-coloured and silica rich.

During this geological visit, you will be exposed to the beauty of High Island, it’s geological wonders and diverse landforms.

Participants please meet at Sai Kung Public Pier at 9.15am, where transportation will be provided from Sai Kung Town to the East Dam and back.

Registration is limited to 30 attendees, with preference given to Engineers Australia Members. Please make sure to register early to avoid missing out.

For non Members, payment can be made in cash on the day, where a receipt will be issued.

This geological visit will count towards 2 CPD Hours.
