Located 66 km south east of Warrawagine.

The Ragged Hills Mine (Pb, Zn, Cu) can be seen next to the Telfer road a couple of kilometres west of the Ragged Hills East Mine. It appears it was an open cut operation. Only very minor secondary copper species could be seen of poor quality. However, the Western Australian Museum has many specimens from the mine. Species include sphalerite, chalcopyrite, bornite, chalcocite, covellite, rosasite, hemimorphite, smithsonite, pyrite, (all largely minor), chrysocolla and malachite which is common.

A photograph of the mine site can be found under the main Braeside heading (at the time of writing).
