West Desert zinc mine

Report summary

West Desert (formerly known as Crypto) is a Zinc-copper-indium-magnetite project located in west-central Utah. In 2014, InZinc (formerly called Lithic Resources Ltd.) developed a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) resulting in a financially attractive option for a multi-commodity revenue stream generated by three concentrate products over almost 15 years. Mining will be by sublevel long-hole stoping, adopting both longitudinal and transverse mining. Separate zinc and copper concentrates will be produced by conventional differential flotation with the capability of producing an iron concentrate utilising magnetic separation. The first year of production is estimated to be 2020.
