Location information
Eastward limit: The Ashburton Range south from Mt Grayling, The Whittington Range, The Short Range. Kartijirarrakanya Claypan appears to have been associated with Warlmanpa. Warrego Mine and Kunayungku OS were associated with Warumungu. The eastern associations extended south to approximately the level of the Davenport Ranges. Northward limit: In the east, Renner Springs was associated with Warlmanpa. Powell Creek and Lake Woods were associated with Jingulu. There is no precise information on the western part of the northern associations of Warlmanpa. They are extrapolated as roughly level with the eastern part of the northward associations. Westward limit: There is no precise information on the westward limit. Green Swamp was associated with Warlmanpa. Winnecke Creek drainage was associated with Kartangarurru. Southward limit: There is no precise information on the southward limit. Warlmanpa was not associated with either the Hanson or Lander River drainages. As such, it appears that Warlmanpa associations extended south to approximately level with the Davenport Ranges (Harvey ASEDA 802).
