Adventure Tin Mine (Australia)


One of the larger tin mines in the Irvinebank district, North Queensland. Some lead also present. The 'Tin Resources of the British Empire' states 'The Adventure Mine, about 5 miles south-west of Irvinebank,
has been worked to over 250 feet, and the Pandora Mine to
about 150 feet. They are both in greywackes.

In 1918, at the former mine, eight head of light stamps,
driven by an oil-engine and aided by a flying-fox for cheap
transport, have been erected for economic treatment of old low-
grade dumps as weU as for freshly-mined ore. No. 2 tunnel
has been cleared out to enable the holders to proceed with
development. This property was originally reopened up,
and should prove worthy of the renewed interest taken in it. '
