The Broken Hill silver-lead-zinc deposit, in far western New South Wales, has been a mainstay of the Australian mining industry for nearly 114 years. During this time it has also become renowned throughout the world as a source of rare, exotic and aesthetic mineral specimens. Such is its diversity, with nearly 300 recorded species, the deposit has been recognised as one of the world’s ‘mineralogical rainforests’.
