The Mamut porphyry copper deposit is located in northern Borneo, in the Malaysian State of Sabah.

The deposit is developed within a satellite of the larger Miocene (9 Ma) Mount Kinabalu adamellite (quartz monzonite) batholith which intrudes Palaeogene sediments, volcanics and intrusives. The district includes multiple granodiorite intrusives, collectively referred to as the Kinabalu Magmatic Zone,

The deposit contained 196 Mt @ 0.48% Cu, 0.5 g/t Au and until its closure in 1999 produced 0.580 Mt of copper metal, 44 tonnes of gold and 300 tonnes of silver.
