The Henty Mine is a gold mine located between Queenstown and Rosebery in western Tasmania. It is unusual in being associated with massive sulphides in altered Cambrian volcanics, and is probably genetically related to the VHMS deposits in the Mt Read Volcanics, including the Mt Lyell, Rosebery and Hellyer mines. There may be some Devonian overprinting.
