Contents >> Mining >> Mining Production >> Metallic Minerals >> Base Metals >> Copper Mines of Tasmania Pty Ltd - Mt Lyell mine

The Mt Lyell copper mine has operated for over 100 years and while there is still an ore reserve, most of it is well below the surface and difficult and expensive to mine. Output, however, increased in 2000-01.
