The Thorpleigh Mine is an open cut and underground antimony and gold mine.1
You'll find the Thorpleigh Mine just off the Four Mile Creek high up in the mountains in northeast New South Wales. Nearby mountains include Mount Davidson (1182m) and Black Mountain (1175m). The Thorpleigh Mine is about 380km north of Sydney (show me). At about 1140m above sea level, the Thorpleigh Mine is the sixth highest mine in New South Wales.

The nearest populated place is the city of Armidale which is 30km away with a population of around 20,000 (show me a map with Thorpleigh Mine and Armidale).
The nearest sealed road to Thorpleigh Mine is the The Waterfall Way (4.74km away).
