Abstract: The McArthur River Mine (MRM) is situated approximately 50 km south west of Borroloola in the Northern Territory. The objective of the project is to mine the silver-lead-zinc deposit adjacent to the McArthur River. The ore will be transported by truck along the Carpentaria Highway, through Borroloola, to a barge loading facility at Bing Bong Station situated on the shore of the Gulf of Carpentaria. This report summarises the results of the first 12 months of baseline monitoring and discusses the implications of the mosquito species, their relative numbers, and the spatial and temporal distribution of the mosquito species in the area. The results of a follow up field inspection on 19-20 September 1995 are also presented.
