A uranium mine located east of Mt Isa. Closed about 1984.
The site has been rehabilitated but now shows signs of deterioration and leaching.
Note on the mineral list: bixbyite, calcite, halite, magnetite, sylvite, antarcticite, yttrotantalite-(Y)(?) are reported as daughter crystals in fluid inclusions in garnet (Kwak & Abeysinghe, 1987).
