A pyritic copper-zinc-lead deposit.
Located in the parish of Bullongong in Murray Co.

Comprises several deposits: Commodore, Koh-i-noor, and Lake George Mines.
Copper first noted here in 1874.
Originally worked late 1800s and ceased in the 1960s. Mostly rehabilitated, the works for which commenced around 1976.
Still a source of pollution in the nearby creeks and waterways.
