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’.

Abstract (in part):
Yancowinnaite is a new member of the tsumcorite group of minerals from the Kintore open cut, Broken Hill, New South Wales. The new mineral occurs in seams in a goethite-garnet matrix associated with beudantite-segnitite, mimetite, agardite-Y, carminite and chlorargyrite. Yancowinnaite is triclinic. Crystals are < 10 um in maximum dimension and occur as rosette-like aggregates forming overgrowths on gartrellite. The colour is yellowish-green to green, the streak is yellow and the lustre is vitreous. The Mohs hardness is estimated to be ~ 3. The new mineral is brittle with irregular fracture and one perfect cleavage.
