The Citronen project’s data room has been open to potential investors for several months and continues to receive encouraging levels of interest from a broad range of investors.

Several customary site visits will be facilitated this year as part of the due diligence process for potential financiers.

Minor site works to commence

Ironbark will be commencing minor site works, fuel delivery and servicing of the plant and equipment on site.

Detailed portal and decline engineering plans have been drafted to allow Ironbark to commence activities this year including a portal and decline drive towards the first and highest grade underground ore source, the Beach Zone.

This will support the proposed 2019 construction and mining plans.

Simple, flat ore zones

The Citronen project hosts one of the world’s largest zinc deposits.

Citronen is adjacent to water and consists of simple, flat and continuous ore zones that form a large-scale zinc and lead JORC 2012 resource.

The resource stands at 132 million tonnes grading 4.4% zinc and lead, equivalent to 12.8 billion pounds of zinc making it a genuine tier one base metal resource.
