Geocache Description:

Welcome to the A.C.T. INVESTIGATE series of caches.

This cache form part of a series, where you have to visit 4 caches to find clues in each one to determine the location of the 5th cache.
The four caches you need to visit are, Assimilate, Collimate, Indeterminate, Saturate.
Then you will have the required info to determine the coordinates of Conglomerate.

All offer fantastic scenery (above and below), take you to out of the way and unusual places (some undoubtedly unknown to you), and yes, all bar one, involve significant effort, though that one is still an effort. A mountain bike would be extremely useful for all bar that one too, in which any bike is impracticable.
It all culminates in Conglomerate, and a worthy mtbikeroz conclusion too.

CONGLOMERATE
This cache is the culmination of the four caches, ASSIMILATE, COLLIMATE, INDETERMINATE and SATURATE.
To determine the coordinates for this cache, you need to have visited each of the above caches and determined the numbers located on the cache containers. You also need to determine the shape on the cache container for INDETERMINATE.

From the ASSIMILATE cache, the numbers correspond to the letters A & B.
From the COLLIMATE cache, the numbers correspond to the letters C & D.
From the INDETERMINATE cache, the numbers correspond to the letters G & H.
From the SATURATE cache, the numbers correspond to the letters E & F. (different to the E&F in the formulae in Saturate)

If the shape on the cache container from the INDETERMINATE cache is a:
Triangle, then the final cache coordinates are:
S 35º G (E+C) . HFD
E 149º 0 A . (E+B)AH
Diamond, then the final cache coordinates are:
S 35º G (E+C) . HFD
E 148º 5 (B+C) . E(A+C)H

The trip to the cache is a long and hard one, but some of it is on trails, so a Mountain Bike will be very useful. This is NOT an easy cache.
Rivers, Mountains, Heights, Fog, Rocks, Moss, Sand, Black Mud, Red Mud, and more may or may not be encountered, so be prepared for anything! The absolute abundance of kangaroos and wallabies will keep you alert. Take PLENTY of fluid, and be prepared for temperature extremes.
Enjoy the stunning views.

A FTF Geocoin awaits the first geocacher to complete this series of ACT INVESTIGATE caches. Cooeeee.

There is NO NEED to disturb any rocks in the soil, soil or vegetation to find the cache. Use the clue, no soil at all!
