Redbank mine


Redbank is located in the Gulf region of the Northern Territory (NT) approximately 30 km west of the Queensland/NT border and 70 km inland from the Gulf of Carpentaria. It consists of a number of shallow oxide copper deposits, with a majority of the mining activity being undertaken at the Sandy Flat Mine site. Hanrahan’s Creek and the Savannah Way run along the north western boundary of the site.

The Redbank copper deposits have been worked intermittently since their discovery in the early 20th century.  Sandy Flat pit, the main disturbance, was mined briefly in the mid-1990’s.
