PNX Metals (ASX:PNX) plans to achieve a number of milestones this quarter including completing its pre-feasibility study at the Hayes Creek Project in the Northern Territory.

Hayes Creek contains the Iron Blow and Mt Bonnie zinc-gold-silver deposits, located less than 3 kilometres apart and situated on granted wholly owned mineral leases.

An updated mineral resource estimate for Iron Blow is expected to be completed in early May 2017.

This along with metallurgical optimisation test work will be incorporated to complete the pre-feasibility study expected in June.

Furthermore, PNX expects to commence work on a maiden mineral resource estimate at its Moline exploration project, which is also in the Pine Creek region of the Northern Territory.


PNX’s focus is on its four projects located in the Pine Creek Region, 180 kilometres south of Darwin.

- Hayes Creek Project (flagship);
- Burnside Project;
- Moline Project; and
- Chessman Project.

The Mt Bonnie resource was updated in February 2017 to 1.55 million tonnes at 3.8% zinc, 1.34g/t gold, 127g/t silver, 1.1% lead and 0.2% copper.

An updated resource for the larger Iron Blow deposit is expected in the coming weeks.
