I was invited to attend a research trip organised by a group of Australian ore geology experts to the Broken Hill district, Australia. Broken Hill, discovered in 1884, is the largest Pb-Zn-Ag deposit in the world, and 250 million tonnes of high-grade ore has been produced from the 8 km long boomerang shaped ore body. The deposit is hosted by a sequence of metavolcanic to metasedimentary rocks in the Palaeoproterozoic Curnamona province, formed at about 1685 Ma.
