The CuDeco Rocklands Mine auction has been deemed a success with all items selling for around $500,000.
An online auction selling excess equipment from the troubled copper mine near Cloncurry ended on December 4.
Gray's Online auctioned the items on behalf of the receivers and managers of CuDeco Limited that was situated at the Rocklands Mine site.
Gray's Online spokesperson Andrew Cotton said he was very happy with how the auction went.
"All 61 lots were sold, the total of the bids combined would have been around half a million dollars," Mr Cotton said.
'"We are very happy with how the auction went, we had lots of bids placed from all over the country and internationally. We believe the auction was a success for both the vendors and the buyers."
The auction featured mine site vehicles and mine service equipment including lighting towers, generators, shipping containers, a demountable building and a conveyor stacker.
Mr Cotton said the highest priced item was the Yutong Automatic Bus which sold for $140,000, followed by the Zoomlion Mobile Hydraulic Truck Crane which sold for $80,000.
"The crane received bids from Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, Auckland and South Australia," he said.
"It is not uncommon to generate international interest on our auctions."
The receivers and managers of CuDeco said "the funds raised will be used to support the maintenance of the mine site."
However Cloncurry Shire Council mayor Greg Campbell hoped the company would prioritise employees and businesses who were still out of pocket.
"Our requirement is if when they get money that the entitlements of the local staff and smaller local businesses were paid, then Council, Chinese investors or cooperate investors," Cr Campbell said.
"However there are going to be some locals who were investors what will have been burnt as well, so I really feel for them too, because they may not see a cent."
The receivers and managers also announced the potential transaction of CuDeco could be finalised by mid-December, after the company was listed for sale in October.
In an ASX announcement on December 3 the administrators said work was underway to secure interest in the company and its assets by sale or re-capitalisation - which is expected to be finalised in mid-December.
