Scotia had previously operated up to 2009 when it shut down due to poor economics. The restart is based on a combined open pit and underground mine. The ore will be treated in a 2.5kt/d plant producing "clean" separate zinc and lead concentrates.
The capital and operating costs included in the 2017 PEA were derived by recent mining, drill and blast contractor tenders, updated costs from equipment and consumables suppliers and escalated cost estimates from the 2013 economic study.
