An abandoned tin mine hosted in a skarn, west of Rosebery. It has been the site of an extensive drilling program in the last few years, by Venture Minerals, and is almost certain to result in the formation of a new mine in the next couple years.
The Mt Lindsay Deposit is hosted within a series of north north-west striking skarns which have been metasomatised by the Meredith Granite enriching the skarns with tin, tungsten and iron mineralization. Resources to date are hosted within the Main and No.2 Skarns which extend over a combined strike 3.6kms. The skarns are complex and variably rich in pyroxene, andradite, vesuvianite, amphiboles, carbonates, sulphides and magnetite, with locally abundant ludwigite/vonsenite, axinite and danalite group minerals, needing better characterisation.
