Pilbara zinc mine project

Report summary

Located in the Pilbara mineral field of Western Australia, seven massive sulphide occurrences have been identified to date, of which the largest is Sulphur Springs.  The Sulphur Springs project has now been incorporated into the larger Pilbara VMS project. The Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) completed in October 2018 considers production of separate copper and zinc concentrate from the Sulphur Springs and Kangaroo Caves deposits. Average annual production over an 10.3 years mine life is expected to be approximately 14 kt of copper in concentrate and 40 kt of zinc in concentrate.

    • Summary
    • Located in the Pilbara mineral field of Western Australia, seven massive sulphide occurrences have been identified to date, of which the largest is Sulphur Springs. The Sulphur Springs project has now been incorporated into the larger Pilbara VMS project. The Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) completed in October 2018 considers production of separate copper and zinc concentrate from the Sulphur Springs and Kangaroo Caves deposits. In addition, the latest mine plan includes production from processing supergene and transitional ore during the early years of operations. This ore was previously excluded from analysis as it was assumed it would be processed by the existing Whim Creek SxEw plant.
    • Key issues
    • The most recent published mine plan outlines processing of ore from the Sulphur Springs open pit and underground ore from both Sulphur Springs and Kangaroo Caves. In this model we consider processing of sulphide ore at a proposed flotation plant, with recent changes in the mine plan including processing of open pit supergene ore by flotation during the initial years of operation.
