Mount Read Volcanics

The Mount Read Volcanics is a Cambrian volcanic belt that exists in Western Tasmania.

It is a complex belt due to folding, faulting and a range of tectonic events.

It is a productive mineralised belt that has profitable copper-silver and gold production of Mount Lyell, Rosebery, and Henty Gold Mine ; and numerous smaller sites of prospective mineralisation along the West Coast Range
