A Zn-Pb-Cu-Ag-Au VMS-type deposit on the slopes of Mt Black in western Tasmania. The deposit was discovered in 1893 but not worked on a large scale until 1936 due to the very fine grain size of the intimately combined sulphides. The underground mine is still in operation today ('MMG Rosebery Mine'), with an expected mine life of >2020. It has previously been operated by several other companies, initially EZ (Electrolytic Zinc), later Pasminco, Oz Minerals and Zinifex, recently taken over by MMG.

The mine has the capacity to produce approximately 700,000 tonnes of ore a year, which is then processed into zinc concentrate, lead concentrate, and gold and silver doré. It also produces a small amount of copper concentrate.

The ore is a volcanic-related (Mt. Read volcanics), sediment-hosted, pyrite-rich massive sulphide, with numerous discrete orebodies, but no gossans. There has been some overprinting by Devonian granites, related to an underlying granite intrusion. This has resulted in some unusual mineralisatio zones, including magnetite, biotite, spessartine, danalite, rhodonite, etc.

Mineralogically, it is best known for its vein minerals, mostly barite and other barium minerals, plus rhodochrosite and boulangerite.
