Weipa Area, Queensland (NASA - October 1995). Located on the eastern side of the
Gulf of Carpentaria and on the west coast of the Cape York Peninsula, Weipa is
situated along the northern coast of a peninsula that is bordered by the Mission
River (north) and Embley River (south), which rise in the Great Dividing Range.
The light colored areas show the locations of the large bauxite mining operation
that exploits one of the richest bauxite deposits in the world. The runway
(linear, light-colored feature near the southern edge of the peninsula where the
mining scars are prominent) of Weipa Airport is visible.
