A very major underground mine working a group of related Zn-Pb-Cu-Ag-Au volcanogenic massive sulphide-type deposits on the slopes of Mt Black, adjacent the town of the same name, in western Tasmania. The mineralisation 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 (2020, operating as the 'MMG Rosebery Mine'), with an expected mine life of many years. It has previously been operated by several other companies, initially EZ (Electrolytic Zinc), later Pasminco, Oz Minerals and Zinifex, but the current owner is MMG.

The mine produces 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 zinc is refined by electrolysis in Hobart, hence the early name “Electrolytic Zinc”.

The ore is a volcanic-related, hosted by the Mid Cambrian Mt. Read volcanic group, as sediment-hosted, pyrite-rich, massive to disseminated sulphide bands, in tuffaceous metasiltstone. There are numerous discrete orebodies, but no gossans. There has been some overprinting and remobilisation by Devonian shearing and metamorphism, and an underlying Devonian granite intrusion (Pine Hill granite). This has resulted in some unusual mineralisatio zones, including magnetite, biotite, spessartine, danalite, rhodonite, etc. (Khin Zaw et al., 1992).

Mineralogically, it is best known for its relatively late stage vein minerals, mostly barite, witherite, harmotome and other barium minerals, plus rhodochrosite, kutnohorite and boulangerite.

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Paleozoic : 541 ± 1.0 Ma to 358.9 ± 0.4 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded on mindat.org for this locality and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
