Information

Ernest Henry Mine is named after the father of Cloncurry, Ernest Henry, who explored the district in 1866 with Roger Sheaffe. At that time he discovered numerous copper deposits in the region including the Great Australia Mine(still a working mine – no public access), Mount Oxide and others. Roger Sheaffe went on to establish the first pastoral company in the district, Fort Constantine.

Ernest Henry Mine is located within the present day boundaries of the pastoral property. It was officially opened in October 1997, with commercial production commencing in March 1998. At the start of 2007 the Pit was 382 metres deep and 1,280 metres wide. 10.7 million tones of ore and 48 million tones of waste were mined throughout the 2006.

This mine is a working mine, and there is no public access.
