Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region (Oshikoto), Namibia

This page kindly sponsored by Marcus J. Origlieri, Ph.D.
 
Latitude & Longitude (WGS84): 19° 14' 31'' South , 17° 42' 46'' East
Latitude & Longitude (decimal): -19.2419444444, 17.7127777778


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The Tsumeb Mine is currently operated by Ongopolo, the previous name of 'Tsumcorp Mine' was superseded after the collapse of Tsumeb Corporation Ltd (TCL) after whom the mine was originally named.

Mineralisation 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 the 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 (Tsumeb Pipe). Local rocks include mainly Late Proterozoic sedimentary terrane.

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

The coordinates are these of the De Wet shaft on Main street.
