Overview & Asset Location

Copper mineralisation was first discovered in the area of Capricorn Copper in the 1880s.

View history
In 1969 Survey and Mining Limited acquired the mining rights for the area now known as Capricorn Copper and commenced development of the first Capricorn Copper deposit – Mammoth. Large-scale mining operations began from 1970 at Capricorn Copper, and included the construction of ore processing facilities and the first production of mineral concentrates.
