Abstract

The deposit is at lat 31 degrees 58'S, long 141 degrees 28'E in NSW, on the Broken Hill (SH 54-15) 1:250 000 scale and the Broken Hill (7134) 1:100 000 scale map sheets. It is one of the richest accumulations of lead, zinc and silver in the world. Mining by the Broken Hill Proprietary Company Limited began in 1883 and continues today in the Southern Operations of Pasminco Mining - Broken Hill. This paper documents results of significant research work and mine exploration that has taken place at both the North Mine and Southern Operations since the description by Mackenzie and Davies (1990).
