Rosebery is an underground polymetallic base metal mine located in the township of Rosebery in Tasmania.


The operation is located approximately 300 kilometres north-west of Hobart and 125 kilometres south of Burnie. It has operated continuously since 1936.

The mine an integral part of the community and the majority of Rosebery employees are local to the area.

Zinc, lead and copper concentrates and gold dore are produced at Rosebery using mechanised underground mining methods and crushing, grinding and flotation processes. The polymetallic nature of the ore body presents a cost advantage through the sale of by-products.

Rosebery concentrates are transported by rail to the Port of Burnie where they are shipped in bulk carriers to smelters in Hobart and Port Pirie. Gold dore bars are sold to a refinery in Australia where they refined into gold bullion.

Rosebery produced 81,447 tonnes of zinc in zinc concentrate and 26,005 tonnes of lead in 2016.

MMG expects to Rosebery to produce 65,000 to 72,000 tonnes of zinc in zinc concentrate and 18,000 to 22,000 tonnes of lead in 2017.

For up-to-date production figures, refer to the latest MMG quarterly production report.
