Mutooroo copper mine


A former copper-cobalt mine located SE of Mingary.

The mine operated from 1887 to 1914 and at one stage was the largest copper producer in the Olary Province.

Located approximately 60 km west of Broken Hill, 17 km south of the Barrier Highway and the intercontinental railway which links directly to Port Pirie approximately 300 km to the west.

Outcropping lode sulphide deposit which has been drilled to a depth of over 300 m below the surface by Broken Hill South in the late 1960s.

Historic copper production (1887–1914) is estimated at 6,000 tons of oxidised massive sulfides including 2,557 tons at 6.58% Cu and 218 tons at 19.3% Cu.

Fifteen shafts and numerous shallow pits have been dug along a 1.5 km shear zone developed within amphibolite considered to be originally a mafic, seafloor sill or flow contemporaneous with Willyama Supergroup sedimentation.

Drilling was done in the area in 2007 by Havilah Resources NL.
