Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region (Oshikoto), Namibia
This page kindly sponsored by Marcus J. Origlieri, Ph.D.

Latitude: 19°15'S
Longitude: 17°42'E
 
 
A world-famous Cu-Pb-Zn-Ag-Ge-Cd mine, renowned for a wealth of rare and unusual minerals. Discovered and initially operated in 1907 and closed in 1996 for economic reasons.

The Tsumeb Mine is currently operated by Ongopolo, the previous name of 'Tsumcorp Mine' was superseded after the collapse of Tsumeb Corporation Ltd (TCL) after whom the mine was originally named.

Mineralization is hosted in Neoproterozoic Otavi Dolomite. The ore body is a pipe. It is about 120 by 15 meters in cross section, steeply dipping and extending from surface to at least 1,000 meters in depth. Controls for ore emplacement include interrupted circular fracturing, core breccia, and an internal mass of pseudo-aplite (Tsumer Pipe). Local rocks include mainly Late Proterozoic sedimentary terrane.

Workings include extensive underground openings to a depth of 1,000 meters.
