Cannington zinc mine

Report summary

Cannington is an underground lead, zinc and silver mine located in Western Queensland. The operation is owned and operated by South32 following the demerger with BHP Billiton in 2015. In August 2018, South32 updated the Reserve and Resources statement for Cannington, which indicated that mine life for the underground mine would be extended out to 2031. Expansion of the mine via an open pit had been considered in the past by both BHP Billiton and South32 but is not included in the accompanying analysis given that the current owners are unlikely to proceed with this development.
