  • About /history

    Waimate district has fossils in miocene, greensand, and limestone deposits. A good site in the Haka Valley is near the limeworks, where many coral and shell fossils are lying around. Waihao Downs rocks were laid down 16 to 22 million years ago; and the Hakataramea is older, at 23 to 25 million years.
