Hornblende Bluffs

The Hornblende Bluffs (69°54′S159°45′E / 69.900°S 159.750°E / -69.900; 159.750) are prominent bluffs that rise to 1,050 metres (3,440 ft), located 2 nautical miles (4 km) southeast of Mount Ellery and near the head of Suvorov Glacier, in the Wilson Hills of Antarctica. The feature was so named by the northern party of the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition, 1963–64, who found the rock here contains the mineral hornblende.[1]
