Texas Silver Mine

The Queensland Government is working to minimise environmental, land and water impacts from the former mine. This work includes extensive measures to maximise water management capacity at the former Texas Silver Mine site to ensure it can cope with ongoing rainfall events.

The Department of Natural Resources and Mines’ (DNRM) specialist Abandoned Mines Unit is leading the project with the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection continuing to provide ongoing support.

DNRM will continue to provide regular updates on what actions are being implemented to manage the former Texas Silver Mine site.

Please visit the Texas Silver Mine Site Management Project page for more information. For any enquiries relating to the ongoing management of the site, please contact 13 74 68 and ask to speak to the Abandoned Mines Unit or email .
