Western Tasmanian Mines
The mines of the West Coast of Tasmania have a rich historical heritage as well as an important mineralogical value in containing or having had found, specimens of rare and unusual minerals. Also, the various mining fields have important roles in the understanding of the mineralization of the Mount Read Volcanics, and the occurrence of economic minerals.
This list is a collation of the names of mines that have existed, a considerable number are found on or adjacent to the West Coast Range.
- The place names after the name of the mine are as found in records, and may not be accurate.
- Where possible, subheadings are created for entries such as Mount Lyell, where different workings at the mine were named, and some common usages do not necessarily relate to company or Mines Department records
- It is not a list of exploration leases, or "finds" where a mineral has been found on the west coast.
