The broken-backed hill in the Barrier Ranges in far western New South Wales has proven to be one of man’s greatest sources of silver, lead and zinc in addition to being a treasure-house of exquisite mineral specimens. This book tells about the people who started mining the rich ore body, those who learned how best to recover its treasures and the men who studies its geology and mineralogy.

Includes alphabetically listed descriptions of about 300 mineral species and varieties which have been discovered at Broken Hill. The more important mineral species are illustrated by 170 color plates produced by specialist photographers.
