In 1867 Ernest Henry discovered copper on the Cloncurry River, a find which heralded the establishment of the Mount Isa - Cloncurry region as a focus of mining activities in European Australia. In his explorations Henry paid Aborigines of the local Kalkadoon tribe to take him to outcrops of copper ore. What Henry probably failed to recognise was that his informants were themselves miners and the descendants of miners. Indeed, at the time of Henry's discoveries Aboriginal miners were at work in the hills surrounding Mount Isa, extracting rocks and manufacturing stone axes to supply extensive trade systems as they had done for perhaps a thousand years.
