Names that other countries have for this feature:
A shallow saline pond located south of the Dais in the South Fork of Wright Valley, Victoria Land. The pond was sighted on Oct. 11, 1961 in a field reconnaissance by U.S. Navy helicopter. In the next three months, a USARP party with George H. Meyer and others made several trips to study the pond. They named it Don Juan Pond for Lieutenants Donald Roe and John Hickey, U.S. Navy Air Development Squadron Six, who were of assistance to the field party. A new mineral, calcium chloride hexahydrate, was discovered in the pond. The name Antarcticite was proposed for the new mineral.
