DescriptionThe Mary Kathleen Mine in Queensland is a mine about 1520km west-northwest of Brisbane. Mary Kathleen was a mining settlement in the northwestern part of Queensland, Australia. It is located in the Selwyn Range between Mount Isa and Cloncurry. Mary Kathleen's uranium deposits originated from contact metasomatic processes. With all contracts filled by late 1982, the township, mine and mill were dismantled and the tailings rehabilitated by the end of 1984. Mary Kathleen became the site of Australia's first major rehabilitation project of a uranium mine, which was completed at the end of 1985. The land has since been rehabilitated and is now suitable for grazing. The nearest populated place to Mary Kathleen is the town of Cloncurry which is 52km away.
