East Leichhardt Dam is correctly identified as Lake Mary Kathleen, Queensland. The dam is located 25 km east of Mount Isa, Queensland, and 9 km south of the Barkly Highway.

The dam was built to be an emergency supply of water for the now-closed Mary Kathleen uranium mine. However, Lake Corella was sufficient.
