Spanish assets - Major data package, first world infrastructure
Toral in proven mining province
From 1976-92, the mine milled more than 12 million tonnes of ore and produced around 1.4 million tonnes of high grade (61%) zinc concentrate and over 213,000 tonnes of high grade (70%Pb and 500g/t Ag) lead concentrate.
Mined between 1935-83, still with ore in situ
Las Medulas Mine
Mined by the Romans for nearly 200 years producing over 200 tonnes of alluvial gold.
Near term objectives in Spain:
Reinterpretation of significant data package on Toral
Establish new target areas for early resource definition
Examine areas that may host high grade shoots to depth
New geological model following assessment of mineralisation
Run parallel petrographic studies for separation studies
Start environmental and social permitting process
Create a credible, high value project capable of supporting near-term production
