"The Woodcuters Mine is located astride the Stuart Highway 80 km south Darwin. Primary sulphide reserves containing possible economic grades of lead, zinc and silver were first delineated in 1967. The deposits are found both stratiform and transgressive within shales and dolomites of the Golden Dyke formation. Open cut mining of the largest orebody commenced in 1985 the underground. There was no clearly definable oxide zone."
Rehabilitated in 2005.

Valentinite
Formula: Sb2O3
Description: "At Woodcutters individual crystals and clusters of valentinite have been found with cerussite crystals sitting directly on fine-grained stibnite and galena. The crystals exhibit a perfect cleavage parallel to the axis. Crystals are up to 5mm in length, have a vitreous to adamantine lustre, are translucent and are light brown/grey colour. The specimens were found deeep in the open cut near the base of the orebody. The specimens occurred in a single boulder of sulphide ore found adjacent to a porous quartz vein."
