Named after a broken silhouette of a hill formed by the gossamer outcrop of the deposit.

The mineralisation was found by a local stockman, Charles Rasp, and the first mining leases were pegged in 1883 by him and a local consortium. The mines have operated continuously to the present day.

This famously complex and very large Pb-Zn-(Ag) deposit comprises a series of distinct stratabound sulphide deposits, which have been exploited by numerous mines along the line of lode. The deposit has undergone several metamorphic stages with at least five periods of deformation (the most intense metamorphism happened under granulite facies conditions - 750-800°C and 5-6 kbar). Its richness was the basis of much of Australia's early industry, wealth and prosperity. 300 million metric tons of ore were produced.

There is a vast amount of literature on the deposit and its genesis, mineralogy, and history of the mines.

It should be noted that there are many mines "near" Broken Hill, but not exploiting the main line of lode. These should be shown under Broken Hill district. Many of these are in fact located many kilometres distant from the town of Broken Hill itself. They may even be located in a different county.

It is only the mines located both in and within a close proximity of the township of Broken Hill (basically the line-of-lode) that gave rise to Broken Hill's fabulous mineral heritage and which are the subject of texts such as Worner et al. (1982) and Birch et al. (1999). The Consols lode and Piggery are not strictly line-of-lode but are included here as they are within the built up area of Broken Hill city.

However, no specimen should be simply regarded as being johannsenite because it comes from the North Mine. All specimens should be tested to confirm they are either Mn-rich hedenbergite or johannsenite. Specimens which have not been confirmed, should be considered suspect until tested.

Tocornalite ?
Formula: (Ag,Hg)I
Description: In Birch and van der Heydon (1997) tocornalite was described as "seams of a compact canary-yellow mineral were found with iodargyrite in kaolin-rich lode rocks from 3 Lens, on the 260m N level in Kintore. The mineral rapidly darkens to greenish grey then dark grey after exposure to sunlight for several minutes. These properties are similar to those of the poorly described silver mercury iodide tocornalite".
