The Red Lead Mine is in the Dundas district, located about 10km to the north east of Zeehan on Tasmania's west coast. It is an old silver lead mine, but presently worked for crocoite specimens and is one of the main crocoite producing mines in the world. Originally worked as an old underground lead mine, it has been open cut in recent years but presently operations have shifted underground with the reopening of some old adits.


The Red Lead Mine is located on the southern edge of the Dundas mining district. The ore body is hosted in deeply weathered, dolomite- altered Cambrian ultramafic rocks, likely to be the same mineralised alteration zone as in the adjoining Adelaide Mine.
