Rum Jungle is an abandoned uranium mine located at latitude 13°S, about 90 km south of Darwin. Mining commenced in 1953 and ore processing ceased in 1971. The abandoned mine site contains three flooded opencuts, their associated overburden heaps and the remains of the tailings dam. Copper and lead were associated with the ore, and both the ore and the overburden contained significant amounts of pyrites.
